CHARACTER LIST:

Narrator:  A woman, not of the time or place of the action. The Narrator tells the story through word and song, guiding the audience gently through the story of Joseph and his brothers, usually gives meaning to the story with her/his words.

Jacob:  The father of twelve sons, his favorite being Joseph. At times he may appear unfair and shallow, but he is, more importantly, the prophet who recognizes the future and the calling of Joseph, thus saving the House of Israel.

Joseph:  Obviously his father’s favorite, Joseph early on shows a talent for interpreting dreams and telling the future. This gets him into trouble with his brothers when he predicts his future will include ruling over the other eleven. However, it saves his life when in Egypt he correctly interprets Pharaoh’s dreams. In the end he has risen to a great position of power, but he still forgives his brothers and brings his family to Egypt to partake of the bounty he has accumulated there.

Three Ladies:  These multi-talented women appear in the play as many characters: Jacob’s wives, saloon girls, dancing girls, and so on.

Ishmaelites:  Men of the desert, they buy Joseph as a slave, take him to Egypt, and sell him to Potiphar.

Potiphar:  A powerful and rich Egyptian, Potiphar purchases Joseph and puts him to work in his household, where he soon realizes that Joseph is honest, hard-working, and a great addition to his pool of help. When he grows suspicious of his wife and Joseph, however, he grows angry and has Joseph thrown into prison.

Mrs. Potiphar: Beautiful and scheming, Mrs. Potiphar tries to seduce Joseph, but is unsuccessful. However, she does manage to rip off much of his clothing just as her husband comes into the room, thus condemning him to prison.

Baker:  One of Pharaoh servants, the Baker is in prison with Joseph who correctly interprets his dreams and predicts that he will be put to death.

Butler:  Another of Pharaoh servants, the Butler is also in prison with Joseph who also correctly interprets his dreams, this time that he will be released and taken back into Pharaoh’s household. It is the Butler who tells Pharaoh about Joseph and his uncanny ability with dreams.

Pharaoh:  The most powerful man in Egypt, Pharaoh is considered a god on earth. When Joseph interprets his dreams, he promotes him to one of the highest positions in his government. In most productions, Pharaoh is portrayed as an Elvis Presley-style figure.

Joseph’s Eleven Brothers:  Although acting usually as a group, they each have their own different personalities, talents, and flaws. As a group they sell Joseph into slavery, but as individuals they deal with the following years and how they can make amends. They sing and dance their way through many situations and places. The performers also double as Egyptians in many cases. Reuben: Eldest son of Jacob; showed kindness to Joseph and was the means of saving his life when his other brothers would have put him to death.

Simeon:  Second son of Jacob; detained by Joseph in Egypt as a hostage.

Levi:  Third son of Jacob, by Leah; he went down with Jacob into Egypt.

Judah:  Fourth son of Jacob; he pleads with Joseph when Benjamin is falsely arrested for theft of a goblet; one of his descendants was to be the Messiah.

Dan:  Fifth son of Jacob, by Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid.

Naphtali:  Sixth son of Jacob, by Bilhah, Rachel’s handmaid.

Gad:  Seventh son of Jacob, by Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid.

Asher:  Eighth son of Jacob, by Zilpah, Leah’s handmaid;.

Issachar:  Ninth son of Jacob.

Zebulun:  Tenth son of Jacob; he had three sons.

As the play unfolds, it reveals the ups and downs of putting on a show, the amorous inter-relationships amongst the players and the director, and everything that can go wrong with both. Act One is seen in the front of the scenery, Act Two is performed with the scenery flipped backwards and Act Three is in front of the scenery again – ten months into the disastrous tour of ‘Nothing On.’
