Sydney James Harcourt graced the Good Morning Texas Studio with his amazing voice.

Harcourt plays the lead role in the The Dallas Theater Center's production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Harcourt and t 14 members of the youth showed how this is different than most  versions of the award winning biblical musical of biblical proportions.

"this is not your regular Joseph," said Harcourt. " There's skateboards, there's iPads, there's kids running around on the stage screaming, there's lights... a rap, there's break dancing, there's step dancing."

He calls it a mutli media story that tells the story form a 13-year-olds point of view from the biblical days.

One person can win a walk-on role in the play.

The show is part of a contest called "Be a Star". Those who want to audition have to create a youtube video. Simply go to thedallastheatercenter.org, learn the choreography, and shoot video of the audition. Creativity is welcome. Then post your audition on the theater's production  Facebook page.

The contest ends July 23, 2012.

The production runs until August 5 at the Wyly Theater.
