Highland Community College's 43rd season of Summerset Theatre will be auditioning for "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 16 in the Fine Arts Theatre located in the Ferguson Fine Arts Center.

The director is seeking talented singers, dancers and musicians. There are roles for men and women, and youth. Highland Community College Theatre Department is actively seeking a multi-cultural cast and utilizes non-traditional casting in their productions.

No monologues or prepared songs are necessary to audition. There is a dance portion of the audition. Please wear clothing in which you can move.

Performances for "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" will be held July 7, 8, 9, and 14 thru 17.

Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.
