The University of Guelph and Curtain Call Productions (CCP) present a unique new performance.
Urinetown: The Musical, the Tony Award-winning musical satire by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis, was performed by the Class of 2007 as their signature show. As part of U of G's 50th-anniversary celebrations, these alumni have come together again to revive the musical seven years after their initial run. They will be joined by new performers and theatre professionals.
Satirizing politics, big business and institutional corruption, the musical features a nameless city where greedy tycoons have privatized toilets to save water during a drought. Those who refuse to pay are sent by crooked cops to Urinetown, where they meet a terrible fate.
The show premiered off-Broadway in 2001 and won two Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score.
Tickets are available at http://www.eventbrite.com/e/urinetown. Tickets are $20 for general admission and $15 for students and seniors.
