What is Urinetown?

To find out, join us at Shoreline Community College’s production of Urinetown, the Musical - running October 7 through October 16.

In the strange dystopian world of Urinetown, a severe water shortage has created a situation where the most basic of human functions has become an expensive privilege . . . unless you are part of a corporate empire that controls the public amenities. 
Urinetown pits the rich against the impoverished, the powerless against the powerful, while it raises important questions concerning social, political, and economic justice and equality, privilege and class. Alternatively comedic and tragic, supported by a rich musical score which draws from a broad spectrum of musical theater styles, the message of Urinetown is as relevant today as it was when it premiered on Broadway in 2001.

Headlining the tremendous cast, making their Shoreline debut, Marshall Link and Clara Todd play romantic leads Bobby and Hope, Aviona Rodriguez-Brown, who audiences loved as Motormouth Maybelle in Hairspray, returns to the SCC Stage to play Josephine Strong. Other favorites include Jay Vilhauer as Officer Lockstock, the principal narrator and the leader of the cops who polices the toilets; Shoreline Community College’s own Norah Peters as Penny Pennywise, the jaded, ruthless proprietor of the city’s worst public toilet; Dima Pogrebniak as Caldwell B. Cladwell, the money-grubbing megalomaniacal citywide urinal owner and CEO of Urine Good Company.

The cast, which features seasoned professionals and newcomers to the Shoreline CC stage, will both entertain and delight. How far would you go for your privilege to pee? We can promise that Urinetown is place that you won't soon forget!

Performances run October 7, 8, 14, and 15 at 7:30pm, and October 9 and 16 at 3pm. Advance tickets available now through Brown Paper Tickets and at the door. Free Parking on campus! Beer, wine, and light refreshments available one hour prior to performance time.
