News Flash: Some Urinetown casting

Some Foothill regulars are back on board to play some of the principles in the upcoming winter production of Urinetown:

Robert Brewer, who was so good as Younger Brother in the Summer 2004 production of Ragtime is on tap to play Bobby Strong. This is the role that Hunter Foster played on Broadway, back when the Foster siblings owned Broadwa (sister Sutton was starring in Thoroughly Modern Millie at the same time.)

Robert's real-life squeeze, Jessica Carroll is playing, no, not his love interest, but Little Sally...the absolutely hysterical character who along with Officer Lockstock serves as a very twisted Greek Chorus for the show.

So, who does get to be the apple of Robert's eye in this production? None other than Brigadoon's own Alicia Teeter...she of the funeral dance that broke your heart. Obviously a triple threat, since Hope is a singing role, not particularly a dancing role.

Lastly, Robert will be harangued by his on-stage mom, Linda Piccone.I'm sure you remember Linda...she of the Old Lady with one buttock in Candide, and other suitably crazy roles.

Sounds like a terrific cast! Can. Not. Wait.
