The Urinetown promotional posters.

The posters for Urinetown around school have surely turned some heads and sparked some confusion. Preparation for Urinetown has been underway for weeks, and play will be shown on April 25 and 26 at 7 p.m. and April 27 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The play’s focus is on a town that faces strict government control and taxation over the use of bathrooms. 

“The basic plot is that Bobby Strong, a janitor, chooses to rebel against a pay to pee tolling system,” Noah Hargrafen, so., said. 

This play is very different than the productions that Kennedy High School typically puts on, but the uniqueness of the plot makes it more interesting. 

“Usually we try to go with a more known, mainstream type play or musical, so this one is a little more out there,” Noah Wilson, fr., said. 

The actors and stage crew poured great amounts of time and energy into this production, and highly recommend students come to see their hard work pay off. 

“It’s fun to see how all of the hard work gets put together into the play,” Wilson said. “Even if you’re not a play or musical person, you should come and see it and you may like it.”
