This Milton Court Theatre production was my first musical at Guildhall. Featuring a full width, 2m high platform for the band, a large amount of flown scaffolding and a collection of custom signs.

As a production assistant at Guildhall, my role consisted of helping the production management team to organise the show, as well as working closely with Technical Management to rig the auto bars, cover parts of tech rehearsals and auto-op half of the run.

A twenty-year drought and chronic water shortage. Public toilets privatised in a government attempt to control water consumption. Urinetown: a tale of greed, corruption and revolution.

Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown, The Musical explores the effects on a community in a parallel universe when water is worth its weight in gold.  Expect laugh-out-loud comedy, beautiful songs and a truly original tale. Award-winning Guildhall School alumnus Ashley Zhangazha directs this ‘sharp, smart, funny’ musical (Telegraph).  

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe).
