We are a no cuts group — all kids are cast in the show, but we do placements on the first day of class for lead roles and featured performers. If your child wants a lead or featured role they must go on stage in front of everyone and sing a 30 second solo. We will teach them a short song from the show or they can sing anything kid friendly. After vocal auditions will be a dance audition. All performers will learn a short dance routine and dance it in small groups. If time permits we may read from the script. There will be two casts.
Class fee: $140 per performer or $200 per family paid to the City of Glendora. $25 material fee due to instructor at the first class meeting, $10 snack bar fee. Includes Lyric packet, rehearsal CD, rehearsal schedule, handbook, & cast t-shirt. Each family must complete 10 volunteer hours (costumes, crafts, sets, snack bar, supervision, etc.)
You will be required to provide your own dance shoes, costume shoes, dance undergarments (including tights, bloomers, tan camisole for girls/bike shorts and socks for boys), stage make-up and hair supplies.

NARRATORS (3-5 Girls)
Soprano with extended mix/belt range. Vibrant, energetic, charming
performer, with a superior voice. Movement/dance experience needed. The narrators must be adept at both being the focal point and then “blending” into the scene. The narrator is onstage almost the entire show. Must be an animated storyteller.
Jacob's favorite son. Joseph early on shows a talent for interpreting dreams and telling the future. Singer/actor. Honest and likable with good intent. Humble but proud and able to transition to the leader of a nation. Must believe in himself and his convictions. Vocal range‐high tenor.
Aged patriarch. He overly dotes on Joseph, to the exclusion of his other sons.
Joseph’s 11 brothers, Jacob’s other sons;
High energy & very active. Singers/dancers/actors. Need to be able to develop strong unique characters and sing harmony. Able to portray wide range of performance styles. Although acting usually as a group, they each have their own different personalities,
talents, and flaws. They sing and dance their way through many situations and places. Conniving, self-centered, and jealous of Joseph's high aspirations and their father's favoritism toward Joseph, they change their ways in the end.
