PlayMakers Repertory Company is most commonly known for producing high-quality professional theater in Chapel Hill. But for the past five years, PlayMakers has been conducting a Summer Youth Conservatory program for high-school aged students.

“Urinetown: The Musical” Is a Scathing Satire of Broadway Message Musicals on the Evils of Capitalism

PlayMakers Repertory Company’s Summer Youth Conservatory will perform a student production of “Urinetown: The Musical,” a scathing satire of Broadway message musicals on the evils of Capitalism, on July 19-22 in the Paul Green Theatre in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Center for Dramatic Art. A splendid musical satire with a terrible title, “Urinetown” features lively music by Mark Hollmann, biting lyrics by Hollmann and Greg Kotis, and an acerbic book by Kotis.
