Description: For over a century, audiences have been captivated by the tragic story of the disfigured genius who makes his home in the cavernous underground of the Paris Opera House and falls in love with Christine, the beautiful soprano he can never have.  Hailed as “the finest PHANTOM of them all”, Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston’s moving presentation digs deep into the life of this tortured soul in a show filled with romance and mystery, thrills and excitement, colors and humor, and of course their lyrical and luxurious music.  Your heart races, your soul soars, and you fall in love all over again.  It is quite simply, an unforgettable theatrical experience!

Description: Adapted from the Disney film set in New York at the turn of the century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. High-energy with non-stop thrills, the stage version includes eight brand-new songs by the original team of Alan Menken and Jack Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film such as “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York,” and “Santa Fe”.
