Disney’s NEWSIES @ Marion Palace Theatre
Jul 7 @ 7:30 pm

The Marion Palace Theatre is fortunate to be among the first community theatres in the US to snag the performance rights for Disney’s NEWSIES. We are thrilled to bring this Tony Award-winning Broadway phenomenon to Marion, Ohio.

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. Directed by Clare Cooke.

Main Stage | Tickets: $40 Patron; $18, $22 Adult; $12 Child age 12 & younger
$40 Patron ticket includes premium seating, name listed in the souvenir program, and a party on 7/7/18
