```You have a PDE with one dependant variable and three independant
variables. I count three*2 (one integration and one differentiation
each) = 6 boundary conditions that are needed, but I am not sure.

You possibly need something like:
NDSolve[{eqns&&bcs},u,{r,0rmax},{\[Theta],0,\[Theta]max},{z,0,zmax}]
