Droll Dystopia: OU Theater Presents “Urinetown” (PHOTOS)< < Back to
The Ohio University Theater Division in the School of Dance, Film and Theater is staging its third production of the 2015–2016 season, Urinetown, by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis.
Directed by Visiting Assistant Professor Daniel C. Dennis, the darkly comic Tony Award-winning musical is set in a future dystopia where a 20-year drought has caused the government to implement a ban on private toilets. Citizens must pay a fee to use public restrooms under the watchful eye of a ruthless, profit hungry corporation. Humorous and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.
Performances are scheduled for Feb. 17–20 & Feb. 23–26 at 8 p.m. in The Forum Theater, located on the ground floor of the Radio-Television Building, 35 South College Street. Talkbacks are scheduled for Feb. 20 and 24.
Through Arts for Ohio, tickets are free for OU students with a student ID. Regular tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for other students and seniors. For information and reservations, call 740-593-1780 or stop by the Fine Arts Ticket Office on campus, located at the East Union Street entrance of Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium, Monday through Friday, 12-5 p.m.
