Oh this rocked! I am so glad that I went. I was really tired and almost did not attend. It lifted my spirits. These kids are very talented and I can see a few of them making it to Broadway. This company and the youth always puts on great high quality creative productions. The narrator was excellent. My favorite was the girl who played Mr. Cladwell. She stole the show and made me laugh throughout. This should have a longer run so more people can see it. Kudos to all these kids that worked so hard.

Spotted Urinetown in my weekly Goldstar email and was excited because my daughter's high school will be putting it on this fall. Brought my daughter and two classmates and thoroughly enjoyed the show--and all three are now planning to audition...continued
One of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years, Urinetown is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. 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!
Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.
Urinetown will be performed by students, Grades 6-10 in the Youth Company Teen Ensemble.
