Director / Musical Director Edward Reichert

Book & lyrics by Greg Kotis

Music & lyrics by Mark Hollman

This production was entered in the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KCACTF) XXXIX.

From the program:

Welcome to URINETOWN! Not the place, the musical. This innovative, wacky, and wonderful.musical is a wild mix of biting satire and loving parody. Inspired by the work of Kurt Weill and" Bertolt Brecht, the show irreverently pays homage to the great American musical theatre tradition with references to classics such as West Side Story, Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof, Sweeney Todd, ahd Chicago among others: I think it's hilariously funny and touchingly · honest, providing our students (and audience) with a fresh perspective to one of America's greatest art forms. Winner of three 2002 Tony Awards mcludmg best score and best book of a musical, we're very excited and proud to bring you the Maine premiere of URINETOWN: the musical. (Google Thomas Robert Malthus when you get home to clarify the mention of his name at shows' end. Oh yeah ... this is also a musical filled with social significance !)
