CYT presents Urinetown, July 16 and 17

Concord Youth Theatre’s (CYT) Young Adult Production Company continues the second weekend of the musical comedy, Urinetown on Friday, July 16 and Saturday, July 17, at 7:30 p.m. at Middlesex School’s Cornelius Ayer Wood Theatre, 1400 Lowell Road, in Concord.

Urinetown is a hilarious and satirical tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. In a city with a 20-year drought, the government is forced to ban public toilets. A hero decides he’s had enough and plans a revolution. Urinetown has outrageous perspective, modern wit and an ability to produce gales of laughter.

College- and high school-aged young adults from Concord and nine surrounding communities will be performing in Urinetown, including Miles Petrie of Baldwin Road and Sydney Callahan of Indian Hill.

Tickets for Urinetown are $15 each. Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling the CYT box office at 1-978-371-1482. Tickets will also be available at the door but advance reservations are recommended as performances sell out quickly. ∆
