The third play of the season this year is the Tony Award winning musical Urinetown. It’s a comedy but it’s not your grandmother’s humour. In a world where water is in short supply and people are told, “it’s a privilege to pee,” a callous business man Caldwell B. Cladwell controls the urinals and suppresses the common people, until a rebellion and unlikely romance takes the story – well, you’ll just have to come and see. We are planning on a large cast and everyone (to some degree) will be singing and dancing and, oh yes, acting. It’s going to be a ball so do check out the audition info on the Langham website, or send the director, Roger Carr, an email at rcarr@shaw.ca

The audition process: On the Saturday or Sunday we will ask actors to try a little movement with our choreographer and sing a short burst of music of your own choice (keep it to about 30 seconds and bring sheet music if you have it). Actors will be asked perform a short scene from the suggestions provided. The director will do some “mixing and matching.” For the Monday callbacks, specific pairings will be given.
