Upcoming Auditions! Greeneville

Greeneville Theatre Guild announces auditions for Urinetown: the Musical

GTG will hold auditions for its next show, “Urinetown: the Musical,”
directed by Brian Ricker, Sunday, May 7 at 2pm and Monday, May 8 at 6pm
with callbacks as needed on Tuesday, May 9 at 6pm. at 250 W. Depot St.
The audition process will consist of singing selected songs from the score,
choreography, and readings from the script.

 Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.

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!

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.
