On October 27, 28, and 29 of 2016, the Minnehaha Academy Players are presenting "Urinetown," a musical that satirizes themes of monopoly and capitalism.

Opening night of “Urinetown”

Tonight is opening night of the Minnehaha Players’ production of Urinetown, a musical that uses satire to delve into themes of capitalism, monopoly and societal issues. The musical is showing at 7:30, tonight (October 27th) through Saturday October 29th, with a 2:00 matinee on Saturday.

Urinetown premiered on Broadway in 2001 and is based on the book by Greg Kotis. In the show, the main plot revolves around the “Urine Good Company,” which owns a monopoly on all of the toilets in the town. Forced to pay to use the restroom, the townspeople rise up in rebellion, an atmosphere that creates the backdrop for the romantic relationship between young Bobby Strong (senior Matthew Humason) and Hope Cladwell (junior Greta Hallberg).

Come out to the show to find out what happens to Bobby and Hope, as well as the other characters, and learn what “Urinetown” really is.
