A side-splitting send-up of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.
Following their successful production of Little Women: The Musical in April, the extremely talented Leicester Theatre Group are back with a bang for the satirical musical, Urinetown.
LTG offers young people eight to 18 years professional high-quality productions, top quality classes and a friendly environment that only a charity can offer.
The 2001 musical Urinetown is a hilarious and movingly honest comedy, with music by Mark Hollmann, and lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis.
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!
No-one is safe from scrutiny in Urinetown, including the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics, and musical theatre itself!
The show will be running at Leicester's Augustine Theatre, September 7-10, from 7:30pm to 10pm.
Tickets are available now. Standard price is £15 and £10 for concessions.
