Who’s in Town? The cast of Urinetown…

The cast of DCS 2011 show Urinetown features some amazing talent, drawn widely from the NW Coast. We are pleased to welcome Annette Dawes to DCS in the role of Penny, Chris Lynch makes a long awaited return as Officer Lockstock, Brett and Laura Budgeon are playing together as Bobby and Hope, Derrick McPhie is back with us again as the charming, but oh so evil Cladwell and we are introducing to Devonport audiences a very talented younger cast member, Holly Johnson as Little Sally.

We are also bringing to the stage a fabulously strong ensemble and band, under the expert direction of Petrina Jahnz. The cast and crew are already working hard at rehearsals and are getting very excited to be bringing you this very funny musical.
