Auditions for Urinetown, the hit Broadway musical, at SCC this August

Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Auditions for the hit Broadway musical Urinetown will be held on August 10 and August 11, between 6:30 pm and 9:30pm, and August 12, between 6:30 pm and 7pm, with callbacks from 7:30pm - 9:30pm. Performances will be October 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, and 16.

All auditions and rehearsals will take place in the Shoreline Campus Theater (1600 Building), 16101 Greenwood Ave N. If you’d like to audition, come prepared to perform a short musical theater excerpt that shows singing skills, as well as a short (1 – 2 minute) monologue.

To request an audition time, go to the theater website

Auditions for Urinetown are open to the community, but everyone involved in the production must register for some type of Shoreline Community College course. They are also looking for students who are interested in tech work to assist in the production. Students can get musical theater performance credits, drama credits, or stage technical credits.

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a powerful tale of love, greed, and revolution.

Set in a town plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce private toilets have vanished completely, restrooms have been replaced by “public facilities” monopolized by greedy corporate interests. The citizens of Urinetown are forced to pay enormous fees in order to satisfy their most basic needs. Out of the pitiful stench of these public amenities arises a hero who leads his fellow citizens against the tyrannical and cruel corporate regime. Drawing on elements from West Side Story, Chicago, and Les Misérables, Urinetown pays irreverent and witty homage to the great American musical tradition. Simultaneously humorous and touching, Urinetown contributes a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.

Dr. Charles Enlow is the producer and music director, Deborah Hathaway will stage direct, with choreography by Carissa Smit, set and lighting design by Richard Schaefer.

For further information, contact Charles Enlow, Producer and Music Director, or John Nold, Theater Manager.

Inspired by the City of Shoreline taking over Ronald Wastewater and raising your rates! Art imitates life!
