Winner of three TONY Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards and others, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, bureaucracy, municipal politics, corporate bad-guys and musical theatre itself!
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single, corrupt company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs! Amid the chaos, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
We will be looking for an exciting, talented, fun-loving cast of 20-25 to fill out the several principal and featured roles in this production. Many non-principal players will have numerous solo speaking and singing lines throughout the show. Choreography is present throughout the performance, but don't let that scare you off! The minimum age to audition for this show is 16 at time of auditions.
Auditioners should be prepared to sing up to 32 measures of a song which best suits your vocal range. Please bring sheet music for the accompanist. You will also be asked to learn a brief dance movement, so please wear comfortable clothing and shoes. Auditioners may also be asked to read excerpts from the script. Above all, we want you to relax and enjoy yourself....we'll be very happy to see you!
