It’s time to carry the banner on your stage with Disney’s Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

Travel Film: The Promised Land, Adventures in the Middle East: Israel, Jordan and Turkey
Parsons Theatre at 10 a.m. on Nov. 21
The Middle East is a land of hospitality, a place where people make strangers feel at home. At the same time, it’s also been witness to acts of unspeakable brutality between warring tribes throughout history. It’s a world of paradoxes, one that is explored in director Rick Ray’s new film “The Promised Land: Adventures In the Middle East.”
“The Promised Land” represents a travel documentary through several Middle Eastern countries including Israel, Jordan and Turkey, and it showcases the wonders of those lands while discussing their rich histories and cultures. It will include wonders such as Petra, Jerusalem, the Cedars of Lebanon, and Cappadocia.
