Line up to see local actor in ‘Urinetown’
April 17, 2012
Some teenage performers need audiences to go to Urinetown.
No, Urinetown is not a real place, at least not outside of a satirical musical with the same name.
Andrew Gryniewicz, a Sammamish Plateau resident and student at Bishop Blanchet High School in Seattle, plays the psychopath Hot Blades Harry in the show.
(Gryniewicz starred as Edna in the Village Theatre KIDSTAGE production of “Hairspray” last summer.)
The drama program at Gryniewicz’s school is presenting “Urinetown” the musical from April 27-29 at The Moore Theatre, 1932 Second Ave., Seattle. Tickets cost $15 to $28. Call 877-784-4849 toll free or go to www.stgpresents.org.
In “Urinetown,” a prolonged drought has caused a water shortage and a soulless corporation controls all toilets. Citizens must relieve themselves in public restrooms. Violators get sent to a penal colony called — you guessed it — Urinetown.
