On the stage

‘Urinetown’ to hit HART stage

The acclaimed Broadway musical “Urinetown” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 3-4, 10-11 and at 3 p.m. Sept. 28 and Oct. 5, 12 at the Haywood Arts Regional Theatre in Waynesville. 

The Tony award-winning production is about the ultimate corporate takeover, where a water shortage forces the tight regulation of all public facilities — “So if you wanna go, you gotta pay.” Revolution ensues. In the style of Kurt Weil’s “Three Penny Opera”, this hilarious musical was a smash hit on Broadway and on tour. There’s no offensive language, but the show is probably best suited for teens and up.

Tickets are $24 for adults, $20 for seniors and $12 for students. A special $8 discount ticket will be available for students on Sundays.
