Next at Footlite: Urinetown

The Tony Award winner of Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score, Urinetown is a side-splitting send-up of greed, love and revolution (and musicals) in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. 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 he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom. Footlite’s Young Artists production featuring performers from 13 through 18. Directed by Ed Trout. Performance dates are August 14, 15, 16, 20, 21, 22 & 23, 2015.
