"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 politics, social and corporate irresponsibility, corporate greed and populism. The unconventional plotline shatters audience expectations of a pleasant ending. The production is directed by UW-RF communication studies and theater arts professor James Zimmerman.

Among the cast of 22 is Josh Pritchett, a senior music major from New Richmond, playing Senator Fipp; Kelsey Hansen, a freshman music education major from Hudson, playing Hope Cladwell; James Davis, a senior computer science major from Baldwin, playing Old Man Strong; and Garner Jarrett, a sophomore theater arts major from Hudson.

For ticket information contact the University Box Office at 715-425-3114. Tickets are $15 for adults and $9 for students with ID 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.
