Prairie High School Drama announces production of ‘Urinetown: The Musical’


Prairie High School Drama announced its upcoming production of Music Theater International’s “Urinetown: The Musical” at the high school, 11311 NE 119th St., Brush Prairie.

Urinetown is a winner of three Tony Awards and many other honors, according to a release by Battle Ground Public Schools.

“This uproarious, satirical take on our modern times is hilariously funny and touchingly honest,” the release added. “Urinetown tells the story of a Gotham-like city, where a terrible water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. This essential human function is now regulated by a single, malevolent company that profits by charging admission to one of humanity’s greatest needs.”

Tickets can be purchased online in advance at The cost is $6 for students, $13 for adults and $10 for honored citizens.

Showtimes are:

• Friday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m.

• Saturday, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.

• Friday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m.

• Saturday, Nov. 18 at 1 p.m.* and 7 p.m.
