Kent, you lost me at "and four."

Do you think you can dance? Do want to "co-star" in Dallas Theater Center's just-opened production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Wyly Theatre?

DTC posted a challenge this week on its Facebook page. Joseph director/choreographer Joel Ferrell is offering one lucky dancer the chance to join the big finale number of the show - if, that is, you can learn the steps from that video above. It's not the "Hokey Pokey." This is genuine Broadway-style choreography full of arm-twisty things and high kicks, pony steps and the "Double Dutch" done in double time. That's assistant choreographer Kent Zimmerman going through it, step by step, in the video. (It's a lot harder than these instructions for "Double Dream Hands.")

The winner will don a costume and join the full cast - Sydney James Harcourt in the title role, with Dallas actors Jeremy Dumont, Alex Ross and others - onstage to dance and sing the big finale. The winner also gets four VIP tickets to invite friends for that night's show AND the winning video will be posted on DTC's FB and YouTube pages.

So limber up and get to dancin'. This could be your lucky break. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is playing now through August 5 at the Wyly Theatre. For tickets, 214-880-0202.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
