Auditions for Urinetown!

Auditions: Sept 15 & 16, 7 – 10 PM by Appointment Only.  Callbacks: Sept 17,  7 PM
First Church in Marlborough, 37 High Street, Marlborough MA

In an attempt to regulate water consumption, Urinetown has outlawed the use of private toilets. The citizenry must use public, pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company, a malevolent corporation run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell. Urinetown is a musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself.

Please prepare 16-32 bars of music to perform, from any musical theater show. Sheet music must be in the appropriate key. No a cappella performances, please.

Please also be prepared to do cold readings from the script, as well as improvisation. We ask that you dress in clothes you can move in and will ask everyone to participate in a short dance audition.

All roles are available for casting (see below for a complete list)!
