Fasten your seatbelts for an entertaining ride! Parisian bachelor Bernard is living the high-life in 1960, engaged to three beautiful stewardesses who each know nothing about the others. All goes according to Bernard’s perfectly-timed
schedule until a new, speedier Boeing jet throws off his careful planning and causes quite a bit of hysterical turbulence. You’ll want to be ready with your chair in the upright position and your tray table up as this award-winning comedy takes off next year!
“This latest edition of a play named for an aircraft soars right out of its time zone and into some unpolluted stratosphere of classic physical comedy."

Greed, corruption, love and revolution. This wickedly funny, award-winning musical satire tackles all four. A water shortage caused by a 20-year drought leads the government to enforce a ban on private toilets. Citizens must pay admission to use the public amenities which are regulated by the malevolent Urine Good Company run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell. Then, one day, a hero emerges to stand up and lead them all to freedom!
"For anarchic, first-rate comic relief, get thee to Urinetown."
