March 8, 9, and 10 are very important dates on the Watertown High School calendar, because these are the dates of the spring musical!

The musical is called “Urinetown”. What a name, am I right? It’s a comedy, so if you want a big smile, come on down. “Urinetown” debuted in 2001 and is about a town that is going through a massive drought, which is causing many problems. The government takes control, and the water is now limited. People’s lives are not the same, but they find a way to make it.

“We started auditions before Christmas break,” said director Kacie Kirkpatrick. “The whole crew and cast have been working very hard ever since winter break and they want to make you proud.”

Some of the main characters are Bobby Strong (played by Calvin Walter), Penelope Pennywise (Sadie Currier-Brown), Officer Lockstock (Toni Carton), Hope Cladwell (Julia Greim), and Caldwell B. Cladwell (Daniel Van Ryn).

There are 24 actors/singers/dancers and 15 crew members all contributing. Their goals are for there to be a big audience, so that the drama program can get more support.

The show will be held in the Watertown High School auditorium on Friday, March 8 (7 p.m.), Saturday, March 9 (7 p.m.), and Sunday, March 10 (2 p.m.)

Tickets are only $10 at the door. You can bring your friends, family, etc, it’s a great musical and its one that will bring the joy to the community. All the money being raised is going toward the drama program so it can expand and do more things like this every year. So please attend, have fun, and don’t miss out.
