A large musically inclined cast is needed for the Studio Theatre’s next big musical URINETOWN and auctions start tonight.

The auditions start at 7 p.m. tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 20 at the Studio Theatre and will continue on Saturday, Nov. 23 starting at 2 p.m.

This musical production will be directed by Jay Goddard and includes a cast of 16 people ages 16 and up. Goodard is looking for eight men and eight women. There are three principle singing parts for men and three principle singing parts for women.

URINETOWN is billed as one of the most uproariously funny musicals to come out in recent years. It is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

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 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, states the musical’s promotion.
