Description

Scathing satire and winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown takes us to a time of permanent drought. It parodies traditional musicals – see how many you can identify – as the two young lovers struggle to overcome the tyrannical Urine Good Company, which makes citizens pay to pee. Presented by the award-winning American high school conservatory The Harker School, in conjunction with the American High School Theatre Festival.
