LMC presents Urinetown, The Musical
Lees-McRae College's Performing Arts Department will present "Urinetown, The Musical," the three-time Tony Award-winning production by Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis, in March.
"This musical delight will be a sure-fire hit with audiences, as it parodies many popular musicals and theatrical conventions, all the while making fun of itself. The show will have you laughing at gags and humming memorable tunes days after the performance," a spokesperson for the department said.
Brought to life through the direction of LMC's Dr. Michael Hannah, "Urinetown" is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold, the spokeperson said. "Urinetown, The Musical" shows a time of corporate greed in a desperate city where all the toilets are controlled and tolled without concern for the poor, bladder-oppressed masses.
The set and lighting design is by Danielle Curtis and the costumes are by Dr. Tessa Carr.
Show dates are March 19, 20, 22, 23 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, March 21, at 2 p.m.
All performances are in Hayes Auditorium on the Lees-McRae College campus in Banner Elk.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children and students. Tickets will be available at the door one hour prior to show time. All seats are general admission. There is no reserved seating.
