Summer Spotlight is aiming to get young teens interested in aspects of theatre outside of acting, as well as give them an opportunity to work in those departments. All shows through Broadway Bounds Summer Spotlight will be student directed, designed, and produced. Helping young adults look into the many careers that are not always seen directly on stage. Also, helping students understand and appreciate the work that they dont tend to see in person when acting in a show. Although much of this program is looking into the behind the scenes part of creating a musical it also uses student actors in order to learn what its like to take direction and to professionally work alongside their peers. Our goal is to introduce teens to theatre in a new light and to give them the experience and mentoring required to be able to independently produce their own production. It also drives to express the importance of every single individual behind and in front of the curtain.
Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an 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!
