'Urinetown' rehearsalMeadows theatre students have taken the lead in bringing Broadway to SMU with their new production of Urinetown: The Musical, to be performed Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 17 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the Margo Jones Theatre, Owen Arts Center.

A Tony Award-winning hit on Broadway, Urinetown is the story of a city where the water shortage caused by a 20-year drought has resulted in a government ban on private toilets. All citizens must pay crippling fees to use public toilets controlled by a corrupt corporation, or risk being sent to “Urinetown” – never to return. The staging is entirely student-driven, with theatre majors serving as directors, designers, choreographers, producers and actors. Four students from the Division of Music will provide live accompaniment.

Tickets are free and available on a first-come, first-served basis at the theatre door one hour before each show. For more information, call Bryan Lewis at 214-663-6761.
