Lees-McRae Performing Arts presents Urinetown The Musical

Lees-McRae College Performing Arts department invites you to Urinetown The Musical, the three time Tony Award winning production of Mark Hollman and Greg Kotis. This musical delight will be a sure-fire hit with audiences as it parodies many popular musicals and theatrical conventions all while making fun of itself. The show will have you laughing at gags and humming memorable tunes days after the performance!

Brought to life through the direction of Dr. Michael Hannah, Urinetown is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. Urinetown The Musical shows a time of corporate greed in a desperate Gotham-like city where all the toilets are controlled and tolled without concern for the poor, bladder-oppressed masses.

With a creative set and lighting design by Danielle Curtis and colorful costumes by Dr. Tessa Carr, the cast will have you bent double with laughter as they tell the story through hysterical song and dance.

Show dates are March 19 - 23 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, March 21 at 2 pm. All performances are in Hayes Auditorium on the Lees-McRae College campus in Banner Elk.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for children and students. Tickets will be available at the door one hour prior to show time. All seats are general admission. There is no reserved seating. For more information go to or call (828) 898-8709.
