Concordia Theatre Box Office Now Open!
Concordia College Theatre presents "Urinetown: The Musical." Music and book written by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis, "Urinetown" is a dark comedy musical based on lyricist Kotis' bad experience with European pay-per-use toilets.
A twenty-year drought has brought the end of private restrooms and the rise of Urine Good Company, a monopolizing corporate power intended to keep "the pee off the streets and the water in the ground." UGC is now fueled by greed and has brought oppression upon the land. Public urination or failure to pay the fee could land a full-bladdered poor soul in the arms of the police force and into the depths of the feared Urinetown. After advice to "follow his heart," young assistant custodian Bobby Strong decides to lead a revolution to free the people and bring an end to the corruption of UGC.
"'Urinetown' offers audiences a beautiful blend of classic musical theatre entertainment, satirical commentary of capitalist greed and a strong critique of 21st century consumption," said director Jennifer Thomas.
â€œUrinetown: The Musicalâ€ will perform on the Mainstage of the Frances Frazier Comstock Theatre on Nov. 14-16, 21-23 at 8:00pm and Nov. 23-24 at 2:00pm. Box Office opens Nov. 4. Get your tickets at 218-299-3314 or email@example.com.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for students and seniors, and are free for Concordia students, alumni, faculty and staff.
