What if a 20-year drought led to a water shortage so severe that the government banned private toilets? Such is the case in Urinetown, the Musical, where the Urine Good Company charges locals to use public amenities. Everything changes when a bathroom attendant takes matters into his own hands and leads a citizens’ revolt against the corporation. Equal parts classical Broadway show and social satire, the Tony Award-winning musical pairs a captivating score with commentary on capitalism and environmental sustainability. Gregory Ramos directs this UVM Department of Theatre production to close out the company’s 2013-14 season.

Price: $10-21.
