(The time of the Sunday production of Urinetown has been updated.)
Watertown High School will present three productions of the musical, Urinetown, this weekend.
The WHS spring musical will be performed at the Watertown High School on Friday, March 8 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, March 9 at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, March 10 at 2:00 p.m.
Musical Theatre International had the following description of the show:
Urinetown, is in fact, a satire of almost every musical you can think of. More than this it parodies the traditions of musicals as a whole in terms of style, structure and story. It also jabs at the legal system, capitalism, corrupt corporation, waste in terms of the environment and our sense of entitlement (amongst other things). Yes, Urinetown is the most irreverent show you’ve ever seen and that’s probably why it’s such a big hit with high school students. Although the title might initially deter high school administrators, once they get to know the show they’ll become fans themselves and will be singing “It’s a privilege to pee” in the hallways.
