The Anoka-Ramsey production of Urinetown will be directed by Speech faculty member, Scott Ford.
Considered one of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years, Urinetown is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a Gotham-like 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 he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom.
Tickets are $8 in advance at the college bookstore, online at webs.AnokaRamsey.edu/theatre (Buy Tickets Now), or at the door an hour prior to the performance.
