AUDITIONS: CDC's YOUNG ARTISTS PROGRAM
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!
URINETOWN is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com
