Shorecrest spring musical - Urinetown

Monday, April 23, 2018

Urinetown goes a little something like this: In a near-future, drought-plagued world, citizens must pay for the “privilege to pee,” until one hero steps up to lead the masses in a fight against tyranny. 
Along the way, Urinetown hilariously satirizes the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, and municipal politics. It also parodies musicals such as The Threepenny Opera, Les Miserables, West Side Story, and the Broadway musical itself as a form.

Urinetown is a fantastic (triple Tony-winning!) piece of theatre, and an ever more timely story that demands to be shared. Shorecrest’s production, brought to life by a vibrant, talented corps of performers, will make you laugh and will stick with you well after you depart the theatre.

Wondering about appropriateness for your kids? 
Urinetown has no profanity or sexual innuendo, but is rated PG/ light PG-13 for sophisticated humor, themes, and some moments of peril; based on our experience, much of that may fly over the heads of younger audience members, who will otherwise be thoroughly entertained by the awesome music, dancing, and, yes, a bit of potty talk.

Urinetown will run from Thursday, May 3, through Sunday, May 6, and again the following weekend, Thursday, May 10 through Sunday, May 13. Evening performance times are 7:30pm on Thursdays-Saturdays; matinees are at 2:00pm each Sunday.

Visit the event page at Brown Paper Tickets to reserve your tickets! Advance ticket prices are $12 for adults ($15 if purchased at the door on the day of performance), or $10 for children under 12. 

Shorecrest Performing Arts Center is at the north end of the Shorecrest campus: 15343 25th Ave NE in Shoreline.
