The Firehall Arts Centre takes on environmental disaster, water shortages and big corporations with the absurd and outrageous Broadway hit Urinetown: The Musical. Opening night kicks off Wednesday, November 5th with a new production of this Tony award winning musical. It is the biggest show the theatre has staged. It will feature 16 of Vancouver’s most talented performers, 5 musicians and we hear laugh out loud humour. The show first appeared as a New York Fringe production in 2001 before moving to Off-Broadway and went on to become a Broadway hit.
Urinetown: The Musical is set in a future in which drastic water shortages and a large corporation with a monopoly on all toilets force citizens have to pay for the privilege to pee. The show will feature an amazing cast including Proud star, Andrew Wheeler, David Adams who is a Jessie Award veteran, playwright and performer Meghan Gardiner of Dissolve, Tracey Power, creator of Chelsea Hotel and Anton Lipovetsky a Bard on the Beach actor and Broken Sex Doll composer to name but a few of the performers. Tickets for Urinetown: The Musical are available from $21 to $42 and can be purchased online at Firehall Arts Centre. For those on a budget there will be a Pay What You Can Show on Wednesday, November 5th at 1:00 p.m.
