02/19/2022 8:00 PM 02/19/2022 9:30 PM America/New_York Andover The Theatre & Dance Department Presents: Urinetown the musical

The three-time Tony-winning musical comedy, Urinetown: The Musical, premiered in 2001. This celebratory ode to the medium of musical theatre was created by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis and acts as a humorous form of cultural criticism. Urinetown highlights the limitations of capitalism’s response to climate change and racialized policing. The corporatocratic response at the heart of the show seems more relevant in the midst of the pandemic where inequities on along racial and class lines are on even greater display than when Kotis and Hollmann created it.

  • Friday, February 18th at 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, February 19th at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, February 20th at 1 p.m.

This event is first-come first-serve seating - we recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to showtime in order to secure your seat for the show. All persons in your party must be present to claim their seat - there is no saving seats and no late seating. Masks are required in GW Hall and Tang Theatre.

Families of students involved in the production who come to see the show can check in at the Information Desk to receive priority seating. Please arrive early (30 minutes prior to showtime) to secure your seat for the show.
