UrinetownThe Theatre Program will present its spring production of Urinetown: The Musical at the Lovinger Theatre April 25-28.

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown: The Musical is a funny, irreverent, and contemporary satire. The musical was nominated for ten Tony Awards and won for best book, score, and direction. It also won the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Best Musical.

Urinetown: The Musical is the story of a town experiencing a water shortage, caused by a twenty-year drought. When the government takes over and enforces a ban on private toilets, a malevolent company steps in to charge the town’s citizens a fee to use its public toilets. Amid these circumstances, a hero rises, and a revolution ensues.
