Urinetown, the Musical
Dublin School will present Urinetown, the Musical, the Tony award winning Broadway show by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis, from February 18-21 at the Fountain Arts Building on its Dublin campus.
Acclaimed “[a] side-splitting send-up of greed, love, revolution (and musicals!), in a time when water is worth its weight in gold,” Urinetown satirizes our legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! The show’s clever brand of storytelling and eclectic score is inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, and since its premiere in 2001, audiences have raved over the outright hilarity this witty, if irreverent, play summons forth.
Appearing in this production are local students Cameron Harrington of Francestown, as Bobby Strong; Maja Hardikar of Peterborough, as Hope Cladwell; Deven Hardikar of Peterborough, as Little Sal; Quinn Thomson of Walpole, as Old Man Strong; Gwyneth Thomson of Walpole, as Little Becky Two Shoes; Taya Kerwin of Hancock, as Josephine Strong; and local ensemble members include Wulff Lauterbach of Guilford, VT, Jared Lewis of Bennington, Emma Williams of Concord and Eliza Sigel of Manchester. Also included in featured roles are Will Arment of Wilmette, IL as Mr. Cladwell, Sydney Clarke of New York, NY as Penelope Pennywise, and Ava Mackay-Smith of Winchester, VA as Officer Lockstock.

Alex Trombly, of Keene, will design the lights. Local orchestra members are Donna Morse, Rob Skrocki, Steve Cady, George Robinson, and Patrick Marr. The Student Conductor is Nick Lemieux of Scituate, MA.
