Watts Hall auditions for ‘Joseph’
Thomaston — Watts Hall Community Players will hold auditions the fourth weekend in April for its upcoming summer show, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” Tryouts will be held Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to noon; and Sunday, April 23, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the downtown Watts Hall, 174 Main St./Route 1.
The story of Joseph, the boy dreamer, and his coat of many colors comes to life in this fun-filled musical. Sold into slavery by his brothers, he became the ruler of Egypt. This tuneful telling of the ancient story highlights music in styles from rock to western, to a 1920s Charleston.
There are parts for youngsters, ‘tweens, teens, young adults, adults, older adults and older-older adults. Families with children are especially encouraged to participate; being a part of live theater is a wonderful way for families to have fun together.
Those unable to make either day should contact director Daryl Hahn at email@example.com. Performance dates are Thursday through Saturday, June 22 through 24; Friday, June 30; and Saturday, July 1.
Those who wish a lead part should come prepared to perform a number from the show; others may be asked to sing as part of a group. There will be multiple ways to get involved in this production. Those wishing to help behind the scenes may come to auditions or email the director.
Rehearsals will begin on Sunday, April 30, and will continue through May and June. Generally, late Sunday afternoon; and Tuesday and Thursday evenings will be devoted to rehearsing, although not everyone will be required to attend all rehearsals. Realizing daily life is hectic, scheduling accommodations will be made as much as possible. The director welcomes questions.
