2023 Audition Notice: Urinetown: The Musical

Audition Notice: Urinetown: The Musical, Dec. 5 & 7

Book: Greg Kotis

Music: Mark Hollmann

Lyrics: Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann

Director/Choreographer: Vincent S. Ratsavong

Music Director: Derrick Lacasse

Stage Manager: Samantha Eaton-Roberts

Synopsis: 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 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!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
