(Abbotsford) Gallery 7 Theatre of Abbotsford will be holding open auditions for its March, 2019 production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical spectacular, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, on Tuesday, November 27th and Saturday December 1st at the theatre’s Rehearsal Hall, #101 – 34595 3rd Ave, Abbotsford.
This favourite musical extravaganza follows the Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. After being sold in to slavery by his jealous brothers, Joseph gains favour with Potiphar, the Egyptian noble, before rejecting the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. Joseph winds up in jail where he discovers an ability to interpret dreams.
His new-found talent catches the attention of the Elvis-inspired Pharaoh, and Joseph is promoted to right hand man. But during a famine, his family needs his help and Joseph is forced to decide whether to forgive or take revenge. One of the most popular shows of all time, this fun-filled, irresistible musical by master composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber, promises to be an exciting theatre experience for the entire family!
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will run at March 22 & 23, 26 – 30, 2019 at 7:30 PM with matinees on March 23 & 30 at 2:00 PM at the Abbotsford Arts Centre.
“This show will be our 100th production and we’re looking forward to celebrating the milestone with this highly entertaining musical,” says Gallery 7 Theatre’s Artistic Director, Ken Hildebrandt. “The show will offer performers a fun and challenging experience.”
