The musical comedy “Urinetown” is opening next month in Fountain Hills.
“Urinetown” will play July 8–24 at Fountain Hills Theater, 11445 N. Saguaro Blvd.
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets, the theater states, summing up the storyline in a news release. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs.
“Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!,” the theater states. “‘Urinetown’ catapults the ‘comedic romp’ into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective and wickedly modern wit.”
The production is directed by Peter J. Hill, musically directed by Kathleen Berger and choreographed by Noel Irick. “Urinetown” is presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals. The show is rated PG for language and bathroom humor.
Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; and 2 p.m. Sundays.
Tickets are $35 for adults and $18 for kids 17 and under. Seniors receive a $5 discount on all Thursday performances.
Group, Active Duty and Veteran discounts are available.
Tickets are available through the box office at 480-837-9661, ext. 3, or by visiting fhtaz.org. Box office hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
