As the clock hit 10 minutes past seven, the lights began to dim and the audience ceased to talk, as Mrs. Paladino, the Drama Director of Costa Mesa High School, started the event off with an introduction to the play.
In due time, the lights completely darkened as "Urinetown-The Musical" began. The musical began with a brief intro by Joe Williams, who plays the narrator, Officer Lockstock, and Summer Rudas, who is in charge of the role of Little Sally. Both actors introduced the audience to the main plot line which took place in a setting where through twenty years of drought have left the people crazy for water.
The introduction was followed by a brief song that was sung by most of the actors called "Urinetown". When the first song of the musical ended, the audience clapped and awaited the next song of the night.
"Don't Be the Bunny" also got some laughs as Kyle Whiteside, playing the role of Caldwell B. Cladwell, and those supporting him as his staff, danced around the stage like a bunch of bunnies.
After a stand-off where all actors began a slow-motion fight, the narrator, Officer Lockstock informed the crowd that it was time for intermission, marking the end of Act One of the Urinetown.
Toward the end of the musical, as all actors stepped out and bowed before a cheering crowd, Kory Bennion, who played Bobby Strong, revealed that it was Mrs. Paladino's Birthday, on Friday night's production. Everyone then proceeded to sing "Happy Birthday", as Mrs. Paladino walked up to the stage to mark the end of a successful night.
