ABOUT THE SHOW:
A 20-year drought has caused a terrible water shortage forcing a government ban on private toilets. Anyone caught going anywhere other than the pay-as-you-go abodes, owned and operated by the Urine Good Company, will be sent to the dreaded and mysterious "Urinetown." Hero Bobby Strong urges the Town folks to "Run, Freedom, Run" and revolt. A crowd-pleasing satire reminding us it's a "Privilege to Pee," but to "Follow Your Heart," Urinetown is an intelligent comedic romp sure to please.
Winner of three Tony awards, three Outer Critic awards, two Lucille Lortel awards and two Obie awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself!
Penelope Pennywise Female, 35-50. The tough, jaded warden of the poorest, filthiest town urinal. Soprano with belt.
Little Sally Female, 18-20, but needs to play a believable 15-16. A precocious and irreverent street urchin. She serves as a quasi-narrator who often questions Lockstock and the play's logic. Soprano.
Senator Fipp Female, 30-40. Stereotypical female politician.
Hope Cladwell Female, 20-30. Fresh out of college. Cladwell's beautiful daughter. She begins as an innocent, but changes as the show progresses. High soprano with soul.
Soupy Sue Female, 20-40. One of the poor - a nervous-type lunch lady. Doubles as UGC secretary.
Little Becky Two-shoes Female, 20-30. One of the poor. Just as psychotic as Hot Blades Harry. She is very pregnant. Soprano with a character voice.
Josephine Strong Female, 30-40, must play older. Bobby's mother and Joseph's wife. A protective mother-figure able to withstand the hard hand life has dealt her. Doubles as UGC secretary.
Judy Cassidy/ Mrs. Millenium/ Poor Ensemble Judy Cassidy is one of the poor from the past that has been sent to Urinetown for peeing in public behind a bush. Mrs. Millenium is Mr. Cladwell's fling. She's an opportunity kind of girl. The character will switch between Mrs. Millenium and poor ensemble, as needed.
This show requires a strong ensemble to carry the show. We may cast a few more ensemble poor and rich to fill out the sound. These characters are in practically every scene - the ensemble will be worked!
