Hill-Murray Theatre to perform hilarious musical satire


Hill-Murray seniors cast and crew strike a pose as the theatre department gears up for the satirical musical comedy “Urinetown the Musical.” Performances are Oct. 6-8 at 7 p.m. And Oct. 9 at 2 p.m.

Hill-Murray Theatre will present the satirical musical comedy, “Urinetown the Musical,” on Oct. 6 through 8 at 7 p.m. and Oct. 9 at 2 p.m. in the Hill-Murray School Auditorium, 2625 Larpenteur Ave. E., Maplewood.

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards and two Obie Awards, “Urinetown the Musical” is a sidesplitting tale of greed, love and revolution. 

Urinetown is set in a town plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable. At the mercy of a single dominating corporation, which maintains a monopoly on the town’s public amenities, the destitute citizens must pay towering taxes and fines to carry out their most private and basic needs. A hero, Bobby Strong, rises to lead his fellow citizens against the tyrannical regime of Caldwell B. Cladwell. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, “Urinetown the Musical” provides a fresh perspective on one of America’s greatest art forms.

The cast includes Joe Mogren as Officer Lockstock, Katie Hinrichs as Penelope Pennywise, Jake Miller as Bobby Strong, Maggie Mogren as Little Sally, Frannie Marin as Hope Cladwell and Will Sutherland as Caldwell B. Cladwell.

Tickets are free for students and $10 for adults. All seating is general admission. Tickets for the Oct. 6 performance are free for senior citizens. No reservation necessary. Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.hill-murray.org/theatre or by calling 651-748-2417.
