WAYNE – Over the next four days members of the community will be showcasing their talents during a musical performance appropriate for all ages.
From the Black Box Theatre on the Wayne State College campus, join the Wayne Community Theatre as they present ‘UrineTOWN The Musical’ with permission from Music Theatre International. Friday morning Chamber Coffee is scheduled for 10 a.m. as community members can enter through north doors on northwest side of the building (lower level).
‘UrineTOWN’ is a family friendly musical which will have the audience laughing until they wet their pants.
Mollie Young has been directing with the Wayne Community Theatre for about 18 years and said she always has fun with her casts.
“This cast is a great mixture of experience and inexperience and all different age groups,” said Young. “It’s really fun to watch them all start to work together and like each other in ways that they didn’t know each other before.”
Auditions were held the first week of May as rehearsals have been held regularly.
Evening performances are scheduled for Thursday, July 18 – Saturday, July 20 at 7 p.m. with a Sunday, July 21 show at 3 p.m. to close out the weekend. Ticket prices are $12 each.
Katie Wynia is Soupy Sue and one of the rebels. This will be her second musical and she talked about what the cast was working on Wednesday evening during their final rehearsal.
“Just finishing touches,” Wynia added. “Working on some character quirks, smoothing out the singing and choreography…I just hope everybody that can make it gets to see this show. It’s hilarious, it’s funny, we put a lot of hard work into it and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
A few audience members also attended the final rehearsal Wednesday evening for those who couldn’t make it during the weekend.
