When a terrible water shortage leads to a government ban on private toilets, a greedy company profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs -- until a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution. That's the story of Urinetown: The Musical, a hilarious and satirical tale of corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. The show's tuneful and irreverent score gives a nod to musicals from Broadway to Brecht and Weill. Urinetown's original Broadway run earned multiple Tony Awards. Learn More

My husband and I love live theatre, so we were excited to attend Footloose. The kids in the show were great--so much spirit and enthusiasm for their roles. The auditorium was small, so there really was no problem with having a seat where I couldn't see the performance. My favorite performer was the guy who played Ren MacCormick--he had a lot of energy and I appreciated his dance skills that were incorporated within his role. Overall, I would highly recommend this show to anyone.
When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.
Footloose is recommended for ages 13 and above. There is some swearing and content matter typical of what you would find in a PG-13 rated movie.
