Open to all Ages (Students age 4-18 must enroll (Can be completed the day of audition) or already be enrolled in Spotlight Acting School – This is a bonus show for students currently enrolled. Contact the office for more information.)
Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narrator, the musical follows the life of preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right-hand man and reunites him with his family.

This incredible musical experience features a live band, riveting storytelling, exciting dances, and beautiful melodies. Co-directed by Chad Hembree and Sarah Jeck with Musical Director Letha Hembree this show will be the biggest of the season.

Participants should expect to:
1. Sing part of a song (Preferably a show tune)
2. Move or dance as instructed
3. Possibly read from the script.
4. Optional monologues will be accepted at the end of the group auditions.
