11th-12th January 2013 in Dubai. Presented by Popular Productions Ltd in association West End Stage Experience at Madinat Theatre, SOUK Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice are the worlds most successful creators of musicals. Lloyd Webber’s famous works include Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Evita. Rice’s include Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King.
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat will give local talent the chance to work with an award-winning expert creative team and star on stage alongside West End performers in this fantastic production at Dubai’s number one theatrical venue – The Madinat Theatre. This theatrical extravaganza is based on the ancient story of Joseph and his resplendent coat of many colors and is one of the West End’s most successful musicals of all time, featuring a brilliant fusion of rock, pop and many other music styles and includes the hit songs ANY DREAM WILL DO, CLOSE EVERY DOOR and PHAROAH’S SONG.
The Producers are seeking UAE based singers, actors, dancers and all-round performers to appear in the show which will run for twenty unforgettable performances in March and April 2013. Auditions will be in Dubai and are free, fun and open to anyone aged 7-60 who has the talent and desire to be part of this fabulous experience.
The production is produced in association with The West End Stage Experience, which is the original and best provider of theatre training and performance experiences in the UAE with seven highly successful productions to its name including Oliver!, The Sound of Music, Disney High School Musical, Annie, Disney High School Musical 2, Fame the Musical and Disney’s Camp Rock. These productions have been seen by an amazing 50,000 people in the last few years and give our performers the chance to experience a real example of working in the professional theatre in a fun but disciplined environment. There is a training fee applicable for the successful auditionees which covers license costs, three weeks of rehearsals and training workshops and the performances.

It’s fast-paced, fun and one of the most enjoyable theatrical experiences for performers and audiences as it really does have ‘something for everyone’. We’re delighted to be auditioning in Dubai – all the roles are available to audition for and the UAE has plenty of fantastic talent which we know will work perfectly alongside our select West End professionals in the show. There are roles for adults and younger performers from the ages of 7 to 60.
