The Western Carolina University School of Stage and Screen presents Urinetown The Musical showing in Hoey Auditorium on Nov. 7-10.
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenitites, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom.
Shows will be offered at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 7-9, and a Sunday matinee will be held at 3 p.m. on Nov. 10.
Tickets range from $10-$20. They can be purchased online at https://tkt.xosn.com/tickets/BuyTickets.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=12100&SPID=191013 or call 828-227-2479.
