Community School of the Arts Presents Musical April 25-27

CSA presents a fable of greed, corruption, love and revolution in this award-winning Broadway musical parody.

April 17, 2014 (TAMPA, Fla.) – The title might make you cringe, but it’s part of what makes this award-winning musical both shocking and memorable. Its absurd, exaggerated premise explores real social issues while it entertains. And entertain it does.

The cast performed songs at a Corbett Prep fine arts breakfast earlier this year.

A fable of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a Gotham-like city where a harsh water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets, Urinetown: The Musical parodies Broadway musicals with whimsical humor and all the wonderful qualities of a classic musical comedy — romance, vivid characters, great music, dancing.

Under the direction of CSA Musical Theater teacher and choreographer Seth Travaglino, the Community School of the Arts production is packed with a cast of 30 passionate and talented thespians from the Tampa Bay area.

CSA will perform four showings of Urinetown: The Musical at 7 p.m. April 25, 26 and 27 and 2 p.m. April 27. Tickets are $15 at the door. Performances take place at Corbett Prep, 12015 Orange Grove Dr., Tampa.

The show is rated PG for its content, and the plot and humor may be too complex for young children to enjoy. Teens and adults are bound to find plenty to like about this off-beat and clever musical. You’ll leave fully entertained!
