For its 56th annual production, Cheltenham Musical Theater is staging the multiple Tony Award-winning satiric comedy musical “Urinetown: The Musical” Thursday through Saturday, April 11-13 at Stretton Hall at Cheltenham High School.

“Urinetown: The Musical” tells of a future when a water shortage has made private toilets a thing of the past. Urine Good Company, led by Caldwell B. Cladwell, has gained a monopoly on public toilets and charges citizens for “the privilege to pee.” The nefarious CEO enriches his company and exiles renegades to an unknown fate in Urinetown. Meanwhile, Hope Cladwell, the leader’s daughter, works with hero Bobby Strong to liberate the public from capitalist oppression. An animated cast tell a witty story satirizing musical theater conventions with irreverent, tongue-in-cheek humor. Modeled after the plays of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht, "Urinetown: The Musical" is a wickedly funny, fast-paced and intelligent comedic romp.

Don’t miss junior Manny Rimmer as Bobby Strong, senior Ivy Austin as Hope Cladwell, Natalie Pomerantz as Cladwell B. Cladwell, junior Sarah England as Penelope Pennywise and senior Jazire Parker as Little Sally in this send up of corporate greed and populist revolution.
