ConVal Drama And Music Present Spring Musical “Urinetown”

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.

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 that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the dialectical theatre works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. 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, wickedly modern wit and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

Participating students include: Doc Cassidy, Hadi Lancaric, Dan Sleeper, Haley Seraine, Jessica Hench, Liasiah Torres, Beau Olesky, Nick DiNino, Alissa Cutting, AJ Mackensen, Nicole Davison, Isabelle Stehly, Esther Janis, Rowan Davidson, Annelise Strong, Avery Swasey, Max DePoyster, Alexander Humphrey, Hannah Leahigh, Kalyn Ross, Morgan Salisbury, Makila Sesito, Ace Smith, Kaitlyn Stone, Luca Stowell,  Alex Williams, Jazzy Woodhouse, Caroline Stultz, Rex Schaub, Jennifer Hopkins, Elijah Lacroix, Josh Ellis, Fransisco James, Frank LeBlanc, Rhiannon Moore, and Kettu Reynolds.
