BELLOWS FALLS Wild Goose Players present "Urinetown": A side-splitting sendup of greed, love, revolution (and musicals) in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. "Urinetown" occurs during a devastating water shortage brought on by a 20-year drought. The government has banned private toilets and the only legal place to pee is a public amenity, run by the Urine Good Company - which charges a hefty fee.
