This is a musical satire about the legal system,capitalism,social irresponsibility,populism,bureaucracy,corporate mismanagement,municipal politics and musical theatre itself. The musical production reveals the story of an attempt to regulate water consumption in Urinetown,but when the use of private toilets is outlawed the citizens must use public,pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company,a malevolent corporation run by the corrupt Caldwell B. Cladwell. Come hear the story! It will be amazing!

And if you are interested in the Fall Musical we invite you to learn more….

Cypress Ranch Theatre is the first to get the amateur rights to THE ADDAMS FAMILY. (Ms. Bankston has done her magic once again with getting us rights before any other school and/or university.)

We will open THE ADDAMS FAMILY on Halloween,October 31,2014!
