Theatre Tickets - Winter Musical: Urinetown
WHS Winter Musical: Urinetown,
 Feb 1-3 & 8-10, 7p

Woodinville High School Theatre Company presents the Tony award-winning musical Urinetown with music & lyrics by Mark Hollmann Book & Lyrics by Greg Kotis to the WHS Theater stage!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, corporate capitalism, social class, and musical theatre itself. This show is inventive, clever, and silly, while also delivering thought-provoking messages about the consequences of societal decisions and the unintended outcomes when the little guy stands up against the powers that be.

Described as “hilariously funny and touchingly honest,” the musical is set in a Gotham-like city, where 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 - a premise that should be ridiculous, but has a spooky ring of truth to it. From amid the downtrodden citizens, a hero decides he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom! See the press release for further details!

Performances are February 1-3 & 8-10, 7:00p at the Woodinville High School Theatre.
