One of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years,
URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and
revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. 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 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.

Hope Cladwell - Cladwell's completely innocent and ravishingly
beautiful daughter, torn between her love for her father and her new
love for Bobby. A parody of the stereotypical Broadway ingenue. 18
to 25. Soprano.

Caldwell B. Cladwell - The president and owner of the Urine Good
Company, a miserly money-grubber who gleefully exploits the poor with
his outrageous toilet fees. 40 to 60. Baritone.

Bobby Strong - The dashing, noble young everyman who works for Miss
Pennywise at the poorest, filthiest urinal in town; the eventual
protagonist and romantic hero who starts a revolution, and falls in
love with Hope Cladwell along the way. 20 to 30. Tenor.

Penelope Pennywise The tough, jaded warden of the poorest, filthiest
urinal in town. A shrewd, penny-scrounging cheapskate, Pennywise is a
figure of authority and lives to maintain order at the public
bathrooms. However, she has a deep, dark secret in her past that
somehow involves Hope. 40 to 60. Belting Alto/Mezzo.

Officer Lockstock - Tongue-in-cheek narrator of the story. A corrupt
policeman who secretly kills off guilty peers.30 to 50. Baritone.

Little Sally - A precocious, thoroughly irreverent and smartly funny
street urchin; the narrator who always outsmarts Lockstock, and
constantly questions the play's logic. 16 to 25. Mezzo.

Officer Barrel - Lockstock's partner. Harbors a surprising secret. 25
to 50. Baritone.

Little Becky - One of the Poor; foul-mouthed, impulsive, pregnant,
and suffering Two-Shoes from polio. 16 to 30. Belting Alto.

Mr. McQueen - Cladwell's sycophantic assistant/lackey. The ultimate
Yes Man. 25 to 40. Tenor

Joseph "Old Man" Strong - Bobby's rebellious father, whose refusal to
pay the fee causes him to be sent to Urinetown, ultimately launching
the revolution. 40 to 60.

Josephine "Ma" Strong - Bobby's mother, a strong-willed old woman who
is able to withstand the hard hand life has dealt her. 40 to 60.

Hot Blades Harry - One of the Poor, a psychopathic, violent loose
cannon. 20 to 40.

Ensemble - The Rebels, Police, UGC Executives.
