URINETOWN THE MUSICAL
South Bay Conservatory's Premier Youth Musical Theatre Company Presents, URINETOWN the Musical! Performed by a talented group of youth performers, ages 13 - 18, from the Palos Verdes Peninsula, Torrance and surrounding communities.
Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG
Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Book and Score, and 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!
Inspired by the 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.
