Synopsis

Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018, sha la la Joseph you’re doing fine! You and your dreamcoat ahead of your time! One of the most enduring shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers and the coat of many colors.

Told entirely through song with the help of a main character Narratorthe musical follows 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.

The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”) and calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.” 

Appropriate for all audiences and groups, Joseph is performed hundreds of times a year by schools across North America, the U.K. and around the world.

IMPROVING YOUR
ACTING SKILLS!

We are often asked by students and parents how a student actor can improve. 
Below is a list of ideas.

1.       Attend shows!

You do not need to travel to New York to see a good show.  There are many
opportunities to 
see shows right here in the Lakes Region.  Watch the paper for
shows at other middle and high schools.  There are several community theaters
in the area:  The Winnipesaukee Players,  Streetcar Company, The Village
Players and The Little Church Theater. 

If you expand the region from Plymouth to Concord, you could see a show every weekend.  

Can’t afford to attend live theater?  You can find many shows on YouTube.

2.       Audition, A LOT!

Every audition is a chance to hone your skills.  Even if you do not get a role
you will learn by seeing what different directors and music directors look for
when you audition for them.

3.       Do more than just school shows!

You wouldn’t expect to become a concert pianist, NFL quarterback, or bestselling
author without lots of practice.  You can’t improve your stage skills in just two
shows a year.  The community theaters listed above often have shows that are
open to students.  The Winnipesaukee Playhouse has a program for children and
a program for teens.  They also have a summer internship program for teens as
does the Interlakes Summer Theater.  Check out their websites for more
information.

4.       Take voice lessons!

Raw skill is great but we all know it takes training and practice to develop talent. 
A voice teacher can help you improve your range, teach you proper techniques,
recommend songs for auditions and help you learn to deliver a song well.

Can’t afford voice lessons?  Join a choir.  You can learn a lot about proper
breathing, harmony, and technique by singing with a choir.

Just remember, singing pop, country or rock music is different from singing
for musical theater.

5.       Take dance lessons

Raw skill is great but we all know it takes training and practice to develop talent. 
A dance teacher will teach you proper technique, improve your rhythm and balance.

Can’t afford dance lessons?  You can find plenty of dance lessons online. 

Just remember, hip-hop, modern, and ballet are different from dancing
for musical theater.

Basically, the answer to this question is
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!
