The Joseph/Narrator cuts are complete, there is no need to bring the whole “Close Every Door” or “Potiphar” part if you’re wishing to be considered for those roles.
Please sing the cut provided of “Close Every Door.” You may bring one additional song that showcases your voice if you choose, but the cut provided is mandatory. If you choose to bring a second song of your choice, please select 16 bars that best showcases what you feel you want us to hear.
