For immediate release: Feb. 19, 2007

BLOOMSBURG — The Bloomsburg University Players will present “Urinetown, The Musical” from Thursday to Sunday, Feb. 22, to 25, in Carver Hall, Gross Auditorium. The musical, directed by professor Michael Collins, will begin at 8 p.m. on Feb. 22 to 24, with a matinee at 3 p.m. on Feb. 25.

“Urinetown” is a humorous satire about greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, “Urinetown” features music and lyrics by Mark Hollman and book and lyrics by Greg Kotis.

Tickets can be reserved at the Haas Center for the Arts Box Office, open Monday through Friday, noon to 4 p.m., or by calling (570) 389-4340. Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for seniors and non-BU students and $2 for students with a BU I.D. Tickets will also be available at the door.
