"If the auditions are any indication, this cast will deliver an outstanding performance," said Timothy Hall, Middle School Theater Arts faculty and the show's producer. "Last year's performance of Rent raised the bar and we are determined to exceed expectations."

Urinetown is a 2001 Tony Award winner that tells the story of a city plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable. Through the determination of destitute masses and the relentless power of the musical theatre, a hero rises to lead his fellow citizens in rebellion against the tyrannical corporation holding a monopoly over the town's most private and basic of needs. The production is an irreverent, hilarious satire with a wickedly modern wit - a "comedic romp" for the millennial age and uncomfortably topical.

In addition to Rent, in 2015-16, our Theatre Arts team put on the Lion King. This year the department also will work with the Middle School to perform the Little Mermaid, and the Junior School will present its first musical production. Those performances are scheduled to take place April and May respectively.
