Warner Theatre Center For Arts Education Performance Lab Presents Urinetown - The Musical!
On Friday May 23rd, Saturday May 24th and Sunday May 25th, the students from the Warner Theatre Center for Arts Education Performance Lab will present Urinetown the Musical in the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre.
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic's Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an earnest tale of love, greed, and revolution. The show is set in a town plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable. At the mercy of a single dominating corporation who maintains a monopoly on the town's public amenities, the destitute citizens must pay towering taxes and fines to carry out their most private and basic of needs. Out of the mass of the pitiable, a hero rises to lead his fellow citizens against the tyrannical regime.
Drawing from West Side Story, Chicago, and LES MISERABLES among others, the show irreverently pays witty homage to the great American musical theatre tradition. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America's greatest art forms.
The performances are Friday and Saturday, May 23 & 24 at 8 pm and Sunday, May 25 at 2 pm. Tickets are $12.50 and can be purchased by calling the Warner Box Office at 860-489-7180 or online at www.warnertheatre.org
