Prairie High School Drama is pleased to announce their upcoming production of Music Theater International’s Urinetown: The Musical. Winner of three Tony Awards and many other honors, this uproarious, satirical take on our modern times is hilariously funny and touchingly honest. Urinetown tells the story of 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. This essential human function is now regulated by a single, malevolent company that profits by charging admission to one of humanity’s greatest needs.

“Our actors are beyond excited to share this laugh-out-loud comedy with you!” said Prairie Drama’s director, Claire Verity.

Tickets can be purchased online in advance. The cost is $6 for students, $13 for adults and $10 for honored citizens.

Showtimes are:

Urinetown is based on a book by Greg Kotis, with music by Mark Hollman, and lyrics by Mark Hollman and Kotis. Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverent musical satire where no one is safe from scrutiny, even musical theater itself. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, biting modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

*The 1 p.m. showing on Saturday, Nov. 18, will have American Sign Language interpretation for people who are hearing impaired.
