ABOUT THE SHOW
Each summer, we hold our celebrated professional-level theater training program for students ages 12-18! Over the course of 5 weeks, students will rehearse and perform a musical at the Barrette Center for the Arts. This program is designed to extend the professionalism of our main stage to our young actors.
URINETOWN THE MUSCIAL
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis
URINETOWN THE MUSICAL tells the story of a not-so-distant future in which water is so scarce it is rationed by forcing people to use public facilities for their private business – and to pay for the privilege. When street urchin Bobby Strong falls for the optimistic and naïve Hope Cladwell, she inspires him to lead a revolution against those controlling the water supply. Will their efforts be enough to bring equality to the masses, or will they be sent to the infamous “Urinetown”? Urinetown the Musical is a hilarious satire of capitalism, bureaucracy, and politics, all surrounding the privilege to pee.
