Toronto: We Are Here Productions presents “Urinetown The Musical” to benefit WaterAid Canada
Thursday, April 25, 2019
We Are Here Productions announces the Tony Award winning musical Urinetown The Musical to benefit WaterAid Canada. Generously supported by Solar Stage, Canadian Actor’s Equity Association, and MTI Licensing, We Are Here aims to raise $10,000 in support of WaterAid Canada’s services over three shows. With staging, choreography, a full band and a cast of Toronto’s hottest emerging musical theatre talent, “Urinetown The Musical: In Concert” will push the boundaries of what an “In Concert” show can be.
Director Matt Lacas says: “With countless water crisis’s occurring all over the world, like Clint, Michigan and the Indigenous water crisis here at home, it’s time the we all start responding. When 1 in 9 people don’t have clean water close to home, it truly is a privilege to have water running from every tap in Toronto. WaterAid Canada has reached over 25.8 million people and we hope to help them continue their work.”
Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.
We Are Here Productions is a not-for-profit theatre company that aims to turn art into tangible aid for those in need in worldwide. In our inaugural year, the company’s production of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In the Heights: In Concert" raised $10,000 to benefit Puerto Rico and The Hispanic Federation and our production of “Heathers: In Concert” by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy raised $6,000 for The Canadian Mental Health Association. We are committed to diverse and inclusive casting, as well as shows that shine a light on relevant issues for Toronto audiences.
