Book by Greg Kotis

Produced by Todd R. Bennington

Directed / Choreographed by Genevieve Estanislau

Musically Directed by Anthony "Coop" Competello

Stage Managed by Robert Langer

 

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a twenty-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets.  The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs.  Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom.  Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corportate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself!

 

All auditioners must provide a current resume/headshot and properly marked sheet music.  An accompanist will be provided.  Prepare 32 bars of a comedic musical theatre song.  Do not sing from the show.  Auditioners should be prepared to read/sing from the script.  A dance routine will only be taught at the callback (if necessary).  Questions can be directed to [email protected]
