Prep Players to put on 'Urinetown' musical May 9 and 10

The Prep Players theater group has announced its newest spring musical: Urinetown.Urinetown takes place in a time of desperation and desolation. A massive water shortage means that private toilets have been outlawed and public amenities are run by the evil Urine Good Company (or UGC) headed up by the villainous Caldwell B. Cladwell. When our hero's, father is carted off to Urinetown for failing to comply with the laws and regulations, it ignites Bobby Strong to lead a revolution against the corruption and oppression.

On the surface, this show is a comedy, riffing on a wide range of Broadway traditions and conventions. But, if you dig deeper, it explores the issues of corporate greed, the growing gap between the rich and poor, and conservation, in the end it reminding us that we all play a part.

The show runs in the Aloysius P. Kelley, S.J. Kelley at the Quick Center on May 9 and 10, beginning at 8 p.m. each evening and running about 2 hours with an intermission.  

Tickets can be ordered by calling the box office at 203-254-4010.
