Central Indiana Students Will Present Musical
More than 40 high school students from central Indiana will present “Urinetown” at 7 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Park Tudor. Coordinated through the Summer Stock Stage, the comedy tells the tale of greed, love, revolution and musical theater in a time when a terrible water shortage has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Tickets, $14 to Thursday’s preview and $18 for the other shows, can be reserved at www.summerstockstage.com.
