Announcing the 2014 - 2015 OU Theatre Season

Urinetown
Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis
Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollmann
November 20th, 21st, 22nd at 8pm
Conant Performing Arts Center
Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of capitalism, politics, social revolution, and even musical theatre itself. In a not-to-distant future, a devastating drought has ravaged the world’s water supply. Private toilets have become outlawed. Bladder bloated citizens must now “pay to pee” using the public amenities owned by the evil corporation U.G.C., or Urine Good Company. Can a few proletariat heroes overthrow the forces of corruption governing their lives and bodily needs? Come to the show to find out! And be sure to use the facilities beforehand!

Fefu and Her Friends
by Maria Irene Fornes
February 26th, 27th, 28th at 8pm
Conant Performing Arts Center
“My husband married me to have a constant reminder of how loathsome women are,” exclaims the eccentric Fefu at the start of the play. It’s spring in New England in 1935 and Fefu has invited seven of her closest friends over to her country house for an afternoon of shocking conversation and social subversion. When the women separate into different rooms of Fefu’s house, the audience follows them and become voyeurs to the complex inner world of these women. Fefu and Her Friends is a mysterious, fun and dissident play—considered one of the pinnacles of feminist theatre.

Romeo and Juliet
by William Shakespeare
April 16th, 17th, and 18th at 8pm
Conant Performing Arts Center
Tensions are running high on the sweltering streets of Verona. It is a city dominated by the hatred between two households, the Montagues and the Capulets. And yet within the anxious confines of the city walls, one of the greatest love stories of all time is born. Two young lovers from opposing houses sacrifice their family allegiances in a quest to be together no matter the cost. Love, hate, death and destiny collide in Shakespeare’s most passionate tragedy. ​
