Yvon, who understudied Donny Osmond on the U.S. and Canadian tour of Joseph, played Joseph at the Barn in the 1997 production.

Bilbrey (Simeon), Dan Black (Naphtali), Randy Aaron (Issachar), Brian Bowers (Asher), Leonard Sullivan (Dan), Caley Oakes Bisson (Zebulon), Josh Robers (Gad), Michael J. Kirsch (Benjamin), Laura Dysarczyk (Mrs. Potiphar), Erik Sisco (Butler) and Jon Lambert (Baker). In the ensemble are Charles Wissinger, Steven Wenslawski, Thomas J. Mienk, Paul Cook, Erica Baker, Elizabeth Earnheart, Alisa McCance, Carey Evans, Anjanette Hall, Melanie Kann, Jessica Joy Kemock, Amy Miller, Ashley Palmer, Jennifer Kapitan and Corries Danieley.

This Joseph also features a children's choir with Shawn Bevill, Adam Bradshaw, Tim Coleman, Colleen Griffin, David La Vasseur, Russell Mernagh, Rebekah Milham, Chloe Reeves, Lillian Reeves, Stephen Spall, Jillian Weimer and Carrie Wickham.
