The Show

In the not-so-distant Taking place in the distant future, the story of We Will Rock You exists predominately as a framework allowing the cast to perform covers of Queen’s greatest hits. Earth’s name has been changed to Planet Mall. Everyone wears the same clothes, thinks the same thoughts and goes about in a brain-dead haze. Musical instruments and composers are forbidden, and rock music is all but unknown. However, a small group of “Bohemians” struggles to restore the free exchange of thought, fashion, and (most of all) live music. With the help of Pop, an ancient hippie librarian, two Bohemians, Galileo and Scaramouche, find Rock’s Holy Grail, Brian May’s guitar buried in the remains of Wembley Stadium.

Other Information

Rehearsals and Commitment

It is the expectation of both the production team and the BMMS committee that everyone involved in this production will be available from the date of their casting through until Sunday 3rd May 2017. To ensure that Urinetown is a production of the highest quality and in fairness to all involved it is essential that all cast members are available for all scheduled rehearsals.

Everyone’s time is valuable and it is vital that important rehearsal time is not wasted by the absence of required cast members. All known absences at the time of the auditions must be recorded on the audition form. Missing rehearsals without notice may result in cast members forfeiting their place in the cast.

A prerequisite for all cast members is that they need to sign a cast contract with the production team and committee of Blue Mountains Musical Society confirming your agreement with the conditions of being cast in this production.
