Here is a look at auditions.

Casting calls include Theater on the Move’s “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” in Chicago.

THEATER ON THE MOVE: Auditions for this troupe’s spring musical, “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” will take place from 7:30-9:30 p.m. Feb. 7 in Morgan Park Academy’s Baer Theater, 2153 W. 111th St., Chicago.

All roles are available and all ages are welcome. Children will be featured in the large children’s chorus used throughout the show.

“The biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable,” officials said.

“Joseph was the favorite son sold into slavery by his jealous brothers, and ultimately became second only to the pharaoh.

“This show employs a lively cornucopia of musical styles from country-western and calypso to bubblegum pop and rock ’n’ roll, emerging as a tale both timely and timeless and enjoyed by all ages.”

Adult performers should be prepared to sing a short vocal selection. Children will be taught a short song at the audition.

Show dates are scheduled for April 20-21.

Information: (773) 239-2399, susan@theateronthemove.com.
