[OCT. 28, 2006]  Lincoln -- Lincoln College Theatre department presents the first performance of the season with Urinetown by Mark Hollmann and Greg Kotis this weekend at the Johnston Center for Performing Arts on the campus of Lincoln College in Lincoln, Illinois.

Directed by Lincoln College Theatre instructor Chris Gray, Urinetown is a musical tale of love, greed, and revolution. Gray says the play is a comedy -- often of the laugh-out-loud variety -- as it pokes at almost everything in its path. “Although Urinetown can be seen as a long running joke, it sustains a central theme throughout, and it's really hard to imagine anyone not producing a laugh at some point,” said Gray. Drawing from West Side Story, Chicago, and Les Misérables, the show pays witty tribute to the great American musical theatre tradition. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms.

Show time is at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 28, with a matinee performance at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 29. Ticket prices are $5.00 for adults, $4.00 for children and senior citizens. To reserve tickets call (217) 732-3155, extension 280, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
