“Urinetown” is a musical based around comedy, greed, love and a revolution of the people. This musical has won several awards nationally, including several Tony Awards — best book of a musical, direction of a musical and original musical score. “Urinetown” takes place during a 20-year water shortage, which leads to the government taking action and putting a ban on private toilets. Cladwell B. Cladwell, the CEO of Urine Good Company, controls the public toilets, and becomes rich from this drought. The musical has a cast of 22 people, and it has approximately 40 people working on it during a two-and-half month period to set this musical up for production. The music is done by musicians, two of which are professors at IU Southeast — Joy Cofield, who instructs piano and Jim Dersch, who is a vocal/choir accompanist. Simeon Burks, the other musician who played drums in the performance, is a pastor at New Albany First Church.
