URINETOWN is a hilarious comedy musical about a town with water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, which has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public facilities, but are required to pay to use them. Amongst the citizens, a hero decides to lead a revolution to lead them all to freedom.
Tickets will be sold at the door an hour before the curtain time, and seating is first-come-first-serve. Admission is free for all Blackburn students, staff and faculty, $2.00 for high school students, and $7.00 for general admission.
