The Edwardian Players, theatre group from St. Edward High School, will present "Urinetown" on November 21, 22 and 23 at 7:30pm and November 24 at 3:00pm at St. Edward High School in  Lakewood, Ohio. "Urinetown" won the 2002 Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical (Greg Kotis) as well as Best New Musical Score (Mark Hollman).  

Although the title is somewhat unsettling, "Urinetown" is an incredibly thoughtful show appropriate for all ages. An hysterical musical comedy, the show satirizes municipal politics, the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement and even musical theater itself. It is a fitting allegory for today, and a warning for those who take politics and social issues to the extreme.

"Urinetown" features Zeke Schmiedl (Cleveland Hts), Richie Pokrywka (Sheffield Lake), Hunter Velasquez (Hinckley), Reagan Bushok (Avon Lake),  Bella Issa and Grace Davis (both Westlake). The show is produced by St. Edward staff members Robert W. Burns (director), John F. Goers (technical director), and Lisa Hirzel (costumer).

Tickets are available at the door or by calling (216) 221-0793, ext. 201.

St. Edward High School is located at 13500 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, Ohio, 44107.
