[December 09, 2016]   LINCOLN - LINCOLN - Lincoln Christian University (LCU) will present “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat on March 23, 24 and 25, 2017 in the Earl C Hargrove Chapel Auditorium.

Director Tim Searby is pleased to announce that auditions will be held on Monday, December 12. In addition to casting LCU students, faculty and staff, auditions will be open to the general public.

“’Joseph’ is a great family show and the University hopes to make this a true community event,” said Searby, “We are looking for actors and actresses from 15 years old through -- who knows?”

The Monday night auditions will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. in the Earl C Hargrove Chapel room C 144, which is Professor Jim Allison’s office. Call-backs will be scheduled as necessary. Rehearsals will begin on January 23, 2017.


Anyone trying out for the show should come prepared to sing a song of his or her choice. An accompanist will be provided, but actors and actresses will need to bring their own music.

Searby is planning a totally new staging which will include costuming by Grand Ball Costumes of Charleston, Illinois, new sets and choreography. The LCU production will be the mega-mix based on the United Kingdom revival production.

This enchanting Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical explodes like glittering fireworks. A brilliant celebration of words, music and color for this exciting retelling of the beautiful story of Joseph.
