Well hello there, and welcome to Urinetown!
Not the musical (just yet) but the blog… Well this week brought us the first two rehearsals for this magnificent show.
I’m so so excited to have been given the part of Officer Lockstock. He is a character unlike any other I can think of in musical theatre and is an absolute dream to get to play.
He, like the show itself, is dark, satirical and hugely funny and I can’t wait to get stuck in to developing him further!
So this week we started to learn two of the numbers from the show, both the opening titular song and the show stopping Run Freedom, Run!
Both songs have heart stopping harmonies and are some of the best music I have ever sung.
For both rehearsals I’ve floated out at the end and my excitement at being part of this show and this astonishing cast just gets higher and higher! I think we’re all looking forwards to this week where we’ll leave the chairs and start to get to move around!
I think that’s bound to bring another layer to the whole thing and I for one cannot wait!
Hopefully everyone starts getting their tickets to see this show as soon as possible. I’d hate for anyone to miss out on seeing this truly incredible cast put on what must be one of the best shows out there.
