CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – Strayer-Wood Theatre and the University of Northern Iowa Department of Theatre will present "Urinetown: The Musical" at 7:30 p.m. in UNI's Strayer-Wood Theatre. Performances will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 15 and 16, and Thursday through Saturday, April 21 through 23. A matinee will be held at 2 p.m., Sunday April 17.

"Urinetown" is a tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is scarce. In a Gotham-like city, a 20-year drought led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets, forcing citizens to pay to use public amenities. Amid the people, a hero decides he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom. The musical is inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill.

Tickets are $20 for general admission, $12 for youth and free for UNI students with a student ID. Tickets can be purchased from the Strayer-Wood Theatre lobby box office from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and one hour before curtain.
