A Must-See Comedic Romp—Urinetown The Musical

CORE Theatrics presents "Urinetown The Musical" a hilarious tale of corruption, greed, love, and revolution. Kirkland performances January 18th, 19th, 20th, 25th, & 26th.

CORE Theatrics presents its hilarious 2013 season opener the triple award winning Tony Award-winning musical, Urinetown The Musical. Featuring local student actors, Urinetown is one of the most uproariously funny musicals in recent years—it’s a hilarious tale of corruption, greed, love, and revolution.

Following a 20 year drought, the characters of the play are forced by the Urine Good Company (UGC) to "pay-to-pee." Those who cannot afford to pay the price for one of life's basic needs are sent to the penal colony Urinetown. When a fee hike is enacted, a courageous rebel leads a revolt against the UGC demanding that people have the right to pee for free.

No one is safe from scrutiny in this irreverently humorous satire. Urinetown pokes fun at the legal system, capitalism, corporate power, political mismanagement, and engages the audience to think of how a malevolent company profits off one of humanity's basic amenities.

With music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann and lyrics and book by Greg Kotis; Urinetown is a comedic romp with an outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of laughter. 

Opening January 18th, 2013, Urinetown is directed by Heath Saunders (Rent 5th Ave, Ave Q Balagan) with musical direction by Blake Saunders (Fidelio, Porgy and Bess Seattle Opera).

Performances for Urinetown are January 18th, 19th, 25th, & 26th at 7:00 p.m. and January 20th at 2:00 p.m.  Purchase Tickets Online.  Ticket prices are $14 Student and Senior and $16 for adults.  Performances will be held at the Lake Washington High School Performing Arts Center, 12033 N.E. 80th St., Kirkland, WA.
