Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, “Urinetown” is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theater itself.

The music and lyrics are by Mark Hollmann, book and lyrics by Greg Kotis.

The show is directed by Dr. Michele Pagen, a professor and chairperson of the Department of Theatre and Dance.

Senior theatre and dance major Alex Hagerty is the production stage manager while Mike Meketa, a sophomore majoring in commercial music technology, is the music director. Senior Josh Kovel is handling lighting design and properties design is done by senior Stephen Reedy and junior Nikki Davis, who are all majoring in theatre and dance.

Alumna Maria Gismondi is the choreographer while faculty members Marty Savolskis and Diane Collins are overseeing scenic design and costume design, respectively.

Curtain time is 8 p.m. April 23 and April 24, with shows at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. on April 25.

Cost is $12 for adults, seniors and children. Cal U students with valid CalCards pay 50 cents, plus a $5 deposit that is refunded at the show.
