The winner of 3 Tony Awards, 3 Outer Critic's Circle Awards, 2 Lucille Lortel Awards, and 2 Obie Awards, Urinetown is a comedic musical satire focused on the legal system, social irresponsibility, corporate mismanagement, and municipal politics. In a Gotham-like city, a water shortage causes a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The public facilities are regulated by a single malevolent company that charges admission to profit from a basic human need. A hero arises with plans to begin a revolution and lead the people to lavatory freedom.

June 25-27, 2015
Auditions: May 10, 2 pm
The seemingly open and shut case of a 19-year-old man who allegedly stabbed and killed his father becomes anything but during the jury's deliberations. A single foreign-born juror believes the young man is innocent and begins to open the other jurors' eyes to the facts of the case. As the debate continues, the jurors reveal their character, tempers grow short, and arguments grow heated.
