Urinetown

We are pleased to confirm that our next show at Hull Truck Theatre will be “Urinetown – The Musical” between 25th – 29th August 2020.

We will be holding a sing through on Saturday 22 February 5-8pm at Hessle Town Hall. Auditions will be on Sunday 15 March. More details on how to audition will follow shortly.

URINETOWN is a hilarious and resonating tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

It is a social and political satire set in a fictional future where a terrible 20-year drought has crippled the city’s water supplies. Water is so scarce that the government enforces a ban on all private toilets in an effort to control water consumption. Citizens who try to circumvent the peeing-fee by relieving themselves in the bushes, risk being taken away to “Urinetown”, a mysterious place where many have been sent but no one ever returns…

URINETOWN is above all a parody and a comedy. In essence characters are seriously silly or more accurately, earnestly, seriously silly!! Notwithstanding this description, it is imperative to make the character as believable as possible. Indeed, this is the comedy of the show.
 
To familiarise yourself with the show we would like to invite you to a sing-through where you will get to meet and ask questions of the production team as well as hear the songs / music for the show:
Saturday 22nd February, 5-6pm at Hessle Town Hall

Auditions will be held on:

“A declaration of the power of theatre!” (The New York Times, 2001) “The show’s glorious message is: Hey, it’s only theatre, but isn’t it wonderful? And did I mention it’s hilarious? Simply the most galvanizing theatre experience in town.”


The New York Observer called the show “fresh, unique, impudent, colourful, irreverent, exciting and wonderful!”
