Post Narrator
I saw a production of Joseph where there were multiple narrators. They did this because of the lack of big female parts in the show, and they wanted more talented girls to have their moment in the spotlight. Does anyone know of some other productions of Joseph that have done this?

I think nearly every school or children's theatre production does this. I was one of two narrators in a shoddy little production in middle school.

Doesn't the script make it pretty clear that there's only one narrator?

I've seen several productions, and was part of one, where there were 4 narrators, singing most of the show in 4 part harmonies. If you have the women to pull it off, I'd say go for it.
