Urinetown: The Musical

Urinetown: The Musical

The Amherst Musical presents the satirical musical comedy Urinetown. With music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann and book by Greg Kotis, Urinetown narrates the tale of a group of young rebels banded together against an oppressive capitalist system.

Set in a world where a corporation has outlawed the use of private bathrooms and charges people to use public amenities, Urinetown raises questions on the nature of limited resources and unlimited wants while highlighting a seemingly unsolvable problem that is arguably more relevant today than ever before. In the show, anyone found breaking the law against the use of private bathrooms is exiled to the mysterious and secretive Urinetown, never to be seen again. However, Bobby, a lowly janitor at Public Amenity #9, falls madly in love with corporate tycoon Cladwell’s sincere and well-intentioned daughter, Hope, and must sort out where his true beliefs lie. Constantly facing political corruption, Officer Lockstock’s brutal police force and Caldwell B. Cladwell’s greedy corporate dominance, Bobby and the rebellion must fight for their freedom to consume the town’s water supply as they please.

Tickets are FREE for Five College students and staff, $15 for adults and $10 for seniors and children under 12. Reserve your tickets.

Part of the proceeds of our production will go towards the international nonprofit foundation “Water for People” which helps people in rural parts of developing countries achieve greater access to drinkable water and sanitation facilities.
