Winter Springs Performing Arts Provides Relief With URINETOWN
We can't hold it much longer! Urinetown the Musical at Winter Springs Performing Arts will be flooding the stage with incredible acting, song, & dance November 1 through November 3. Performances are Friday, Saturday at 7pm and Saturday, Sunday at 2pm.
In a grungy, run-down, forgotten 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 that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to flushing freedom!
The cast includes youth actors ages 11 through adult, making this Winter Springs Performing Arts first production delving into the Orlando community theatre scene. Student performers who have been developing their performance skills at Winter Springs Performing Arts education program are cast amongst veteran actors such as Theo Champagne and Amber Mercer whom head up this cast in a perfect pairing as Bobby Strong and Hope Cladwell.
Along with performance skills, the youth actors are learning how to work alongside diverse performers. Marc Batchelor, Michael Matson, and Angie McCoy are just a few of our older adult performers teaching the students to work with maturity and professionalism. Theo Champagne (Bobby Strong), a non-binary individual, is inspiring the students to see beyond the construct of gender norms when playing different roles & characters.
