The Melissa High School theatre program will present Urinetown: The Musical in six shows this November in the Black Box theater. Tickets cost $15 each and go on sale Oct. 4.

Showtimes include Nov. 16 at 7:00 p.m., Nov. 17 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., Nov. 21 at 7:00 p.m., and Nov. 23 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.

An excerpt from the Urinetown synopsis reads:

“In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!”
