The Platte Valley Players, Brighton’s nationally award-winning community theater, presents “Urinetown: The Musical” for two consecutive weekends, Friday and Saturday September 16-17 and September 23-24 at the Armory for the Performing Arts in Brighton, Colorado. Show times are 7:30 pm each night with a matinee at 2:00 pm each Saturday.
“Urinetown” is set in a Gotham-city like town which is experiencing a terrible water shortage. To address the water problem, the government has outlawed the use of private toilets. The public must pay for the privilege to pee, using expensive government-controlled facilities overseen by the unscrupulous Caldwell B. Caldwell. Anyone who fails to heed the mandate is shipped off to Urinetown, seemingly never to be heard from again. A darkly comic musical, “Urinetown” promises to be warm, funny and profound all at the same time.
“This is such a fun show starring a large, gifted cast with some of Denver’s most talented musical theater actors”, said Kelly Van Osbree, Artistic Director of the Platte Valley Players and Director of Urinetown. “It’s a satirical look at a dystopian society done in a fun, funny and irreverent way. It’s going to be terrific!”
Tickets for Urinetown: The Musical are available through the Platte Valley Players website at www.plattevalleyplayers.org. Tickets are $20 for adults in advance and $22 at the door. Seniors over 65 and juniors under 12 are $18 in advance and $20 at the door.
The Platte Valley Players are thankful for funding partnerships of the Colorado Creative Industries, The SCFD Fund, the City of Brighton’s Lodging Tax Grant and the Brighton Arts Commission along with the support of many local businesses who sustain live performing arts.
