2014-2015 Staff Arts Musical  "Urinetown"

Cast and Crew Page

 

TCDSB Staff Arts Invites You!

Staff Arts is looking for performers and people to work backstage on this year’s musical production: "Urinetown", a musical by Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis

 

Come out and join the fun!
 

The show

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 theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms.

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 he's had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
