Rehearsal dates TBA. Music and choreography will rehearse between May 8 and June 11; the musical director and choreographer will provide their own schedules to be given to the company. The director will provide a rehearsal schedule for the dates of June 12 to July 15. After June 12, the cast should plan for a minimum of 3 nights per week, as well as at least one day on the weekend. Actual rehearsal calls will be dependent upon submitted conflict dates.
Please do not assume that the production staff has planned in advance for no rehearsals over holidays and holiday weekends. While this may turn out to be the case, we still need to know your availability for ALL dates within our production's time frame.
WHY: Due to a government-enforced ban on private toilets, Urinetown citizens must pay to use public amenities. In a hilarious tale of corruption, greed, and love, the oppressed masses plan a revolution against the malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs.
