‘Urinetown’ Musical is UWRF Theater Production

UrinetownSEPT. 28, 2009 | The University of Wisconsin-River Falls presents “Urinetown: The Musical” Oct. 22-24 and 29-31 with performances at 7:30 p.m. in the Blanche Davis Theatre in the Kleinpell Fine Arts building on campus.

“Urinetown” is a comedic satire with music by Mark Hollmann, lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, and based on a book by Kotis. It satirizes many American truisms, including capitalism, small town poltics, social and corporate irresponsibility, corporate greed and populism. The unconventional plotline shatters audience expectations of a pleasant ending. The production is directed by UWRF communication studies and theater arts professor James Zimmerman.

For ticket information contact the University Box Office at 715-425-3114. Tickets are $15 for adults and $9 for students with I.D. and seniors. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays and the box office is also open an hour prior to performance.
