The musical will be performed by college students, ages 18-24.

Urinetown is a 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," organizers note. "Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!"

Here are the show dates and times:

  • Thursday, July 28 -- 8 p.m.
  • Friday, July 29 -- 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, July 30 -- 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, July 31 -- 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
