URINETOWN
CITY CIRCLE Acting Company OF CORALVILLE
2/1-2/10/2013
One of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years, URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution 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! Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, URINETOWN is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, URINETOWN catapults the ?comedic romp? into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

THE LAST FIVE YEARS
THE DES MOINES SOCIAL CLUB-LOCUST PRODUCTIONS
2/7-2/17/2013
THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a contemporary song-cycle musical that ingeniously chronicles the five year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up... or from break-up to meeting, depending on how you look at it. Written by Jason Robert Brown (PARADE, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD), THE LAST FIVE YEARS is an intensely personal look at the relationship between a writer and an actress told from both points of view. This intimate musical is perfect for small theatre companies and black box venues. With its two-person cast, acting stamina is a must.
