|Wordplay, a TV screen interjecting plot elements and visuals, intricate dance numbers and well worded songs all make up a great play that keeps you on your toes.
Will Mike Rodin (as Bobby Strong) and Kate Suhr (as Hope Cladwell) make you believe in following your heart when the citizens of Urinetown are being repressed and have to pay even to urinate. Could this be our own bleak future? This production has gone to great lengths to transport us there with actors emerging from the audience, posters throughout the building (don't forget to read them during intermission) and the witty banter of the narrator Brian Macdonald. An orchestra and a large cast of many talented local artists make this a very enjoyable show.
Directed by Sarah Tye, Musical direction by Brian Macdonald, Orchestration by Justin Hiscox, Choreography by Rachel Bemrose and Produced by Jess Anderson.
Urinetown is playing at the Peterborough Theatre Guild April 20th to May 5th and tickets are $25/adults, $22/Seniors, and $15/students.
