Newsies Tickets Open to the Public!
Celebrating 20 years of productions, St. Thomas Playhouse’s Summer Theater Project returns this July with performances of Newsies. The Summer Theater Project brings together high school students and young adults across the Wood River Valley to stage a full musical production.
Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of a band of teenaged “newsies” who rally together to take on the titans of publishing after a rise in distribution prices at the newsies’ expense. Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by the true story of the 1899 Newsboy Strike, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. 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.
Seating will be General Admission and space will be limited to allow our audience to spread out.
