RHS to present the musical ‘Urinetown’ — Remember, don’t judge a book by its cover

Royall High School students will present the Tony-award-winning musical “Urinetown,” on Saturday, Aug. 12, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 13, at 2 p.m. in the Royall High School gymnasium.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for students, and free for children younger than 5.

“Urinetown” is a musical satire of capitalism, social irresponsibility, the legal system, politics and musical theatre itself. Set in a Gotham-like city where a terrible water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets, 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.

The cast and crew encourage you to “not let the title scare you away!” (In fact, the musical itself makes fun of the title.)

In addition to being incredibly witty and funny, “Urinetown” examines the balance between personal freedom and responsibility to the greater good.

Director Janet Baeseman said, “The students have been having a blast practicing all summer and really hope you will come out and support them.”
