The Un-Common Theatre Company closes our 40th season with our Young Adult Summer Production of Urinetown.
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
Auditions for students currently in Grade 9 though age 21 will be held in mid-May. Rehearsals will be Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 9:00 pm. Please check back in April for more information on scheduling an audition.
Urinetown is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
This program is supported in part by grants from the Mansfield, Norton and Wrentham Cultural Councils, local agencies which are supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
