Skyline College Dance, Drama, and Music Departments invite you to join us for our 2021 Spring Musical production of URINETOWN, the musical. Directed by Skyline College instructor and former Broadway performer Gary D. Ferguson; Urinetown tells the story of a dystopian society that requires a fee to pee, and the hero who leads the fight against the establishment and this restrictive regulation.
A Broadway cult classic celebrating its 20th anniversary, this Brechtian musical pokes fun at such varied topics as authority, capitalism, classism, environmental devastation, love, and even musicals. In URINETOWN, private restrooms are nowhere to be found and everyone must pay for the privilege to use the public facilities. What IF the only option was PAY toilets??!!
Creating the production for a streaming environment added new challenges for directors, cast, and crew. Music Director Jude Navari shared that “having to reimagine how to get the desired results, has been challenging but also rewarding . . . we have come up with interesting and potentially potent ways of finding solutions for how to create work in a new medium.”
Technical Director Josh Harris believes students have received an “invaluable learning experience” through the training required to manage their own technical theater needs at home.
