You’re in luck: ‘Urinetown’ comes to Waltmar Theatre

September 27, 2011

Hope Cladwell (Kellie Spill) and Bobby Strong (A.J. Costa) sing of love in Chapman University’s production of "Urinetown, The Musical."

Take a Tony Award-winning musical with an unpleasant title.  Add a storyline built around a town with such a serious water shortage that people have to pay to use public toilets. Mix it with a tuneful and irreverent score that gives a nod to musicals from Broadway to Brecht and Weill.

And you have Urinetown, The Musical, the unique, impudent, satirical and ultimately very funny musical. 

The Department of Theatre’s fall production directed by Todd Nielsen opens at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, and continues Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, 6-8, with additional shows Oct. 1 and 8 at 2 p.m. at Waltmar Theatre.

Tickets are $15 to $20. For tickets, call 714-997-6812 or visit www.chapman.edu/copa.

    Had the privilege of seeing this musical on Broadway 10 years ago. I laughed all night long–and some of the issues it raises have stayed with me. PERFECT as we have chosen the theme of WATER for the campus this year in the President’s Interfaith and Community Service Campus Initiative
