The Kaneland Community Fine Arts Festival is excited to announce auditions for our Summer 2013 production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Iconic Musical Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.

All Auditions will be at Kaneland High School, 47W326 Keslinger Road, Maple Park, IL 60151.

Adult Auditions (Both men and women are needed, age 18 and older):

Friday, May 17th from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM

Sunday, May 19th from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Besides the traditional roles in Joseph, some iconic adult roles will need to be filled, specifically Michael Jackson, Donald Trump, and Donald Trump's wives.

Monday, May 20th beginning at 6:30 PM

Children's Chorus Auditions:
