About the show

Amas Musical Theatre revives this Tony winning satire of capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics, and musical theater itself. More…

In an attempt to regulate water consumption, Urinetown has outlawed the use of private toilets. The citizenry must use public, pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company, a malevolent corporation run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell. Underneath the comedy of the show, serious social and political themes, such as liberation, revolution, and sustainability, are explored.

Delightful, Refreshing, Romantic

See it if Youyu are looking for another very good teenage academy production from the AMAS supported group

Don't see it if you are looking for an NYU production. That will be the next phase

Ambitious, Funny, Quirky

See it if you do not mind amateurish productions and you enjoy unsual plots.

Don't see it if you prefer professional productions amd would not enjoy teens playing adults.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Delightful

See it if You support youth! Oldest member of cast is 19, they work really hard to bring this show to life. I enjoyed it and had a good time.

Don't see it if You expect a Broadway production or if you don't support youth. Don't see it if you are going to criticize youth trying to do positive

Entertaining, Thought-provoking, Original, Refreshing, Quirky

See it if you are free for an afternoon, but don't expect your typical off-Broadway production. Some of the cast was great, but they are still young.

Don't see it if you are looking for an all star cast. This was performed by up and coming high-school kids. Some will go on to be the next stars of shows.
