Director Gary Daigneault and Musical Director Ed Will have announced open auditions will be held for the edgy new Broadway hit musical “Urinetown, the Musical”€, with Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollmann and Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis.

“Urinetown”€ (yes that is really the name of the show), is a side-splitting send-up of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

Winner of three TONY Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself!

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, (sound familiar?) 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!

Daigneault and Will, along with Choreographer Mandi Pushkar, will cast from 11-20 flexible performers in an ensemble cast. There are featured roles, older characters, and both male and female leads. Auditions will be held at 6:00 p.m. Monday, January 12, 2015, at Theatre 29, 73637 Sullivan Road, Twentynine Palms.

Those interested in helping backstage with sets, costumes, props, or set construction are also asked to go to the auditions and leave their contact information.
