The curtain is going up at 7 p.m, Thursday, April 7 for opening night for the Belmont High School Performing Arts Company’s production of “Urinetown, the Musical.”

In a Depression-era metropolis, a 20-year drought has caused such a water shortage that the city government has banned private toilets. The citizens must use “public amenities,” regulated by a monopoly that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs.

Amid the people, a young, idealistic hero, Bobby Strong, decides he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them running to freedom! Along the way, the audience is kept informed of the plot with Officer Lockstock assisted by a street urchin named Little Sally.  But, by the end, good intentions don’t always lead to the best outcome. But you’ll have to see the musical to find out what happens.

Performances are:

  • Thursday and Friday, April 7 and 8, at 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, April 9 at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Tickets will be online and at Champions Sporting Goods in Belmont Center. Tickets are $10 for students (BHS students get half-price tickets Thursday) and $15 for adults ($18 if they wait to buy them at the show).
