A producer could make more money with a flop than he could with a hit. And so begins one of the most hilarious cons in musical theatre history.

After an off the cuff comment from his accountant Leo Bloom, dollar signs go off over his head. Suggested Rating: PG-13 for strong language, sexual humor & adult content. Out of respect for patrons, children ages 2 and under are not permitted in the theatre. Drive on your own.

Newsies
1:30pm
Paramount Theatre
The Details:

$37 per ticket

STRAIGHT FROM THE HEADLINES of turn of the century New York comes the true story that had Broadway
roaring before it even opened. Featuring unforgettable songs audiences have fallen in love with again and
again and a story that will make you want to stand up and cheer, Newsies is the perfect show to open up our
ninth season.
High in the skyscrapers of New York City, Joseph Pulitzer is plotting a way to increase the revenue of his
declining newspaper; while down in the streets, newsboys hawk papers on corners barely making enough to
survive. When Pulitzer raises the price of the paper, delivery boy Jack Kelly organizes a strike to show Pulitzer
and his gang of cronies they’re not going to be pushed into the gutter.
Based on the 1992 movie, Newsies is a rousing musical nominated for 8 Tony Awards, winning Best
Choreography and Best Score. Featuring music from Alan Menken, the 8-time Oscar-winning genius behind
scores from some of the most popular Disney films of all time, including Aladdin, The Little Mermaid,
Pocahontas and Beauty and the Beast, Newsies is refreshing, inspirational and a huge feel-good show for the
whole family. Want good news? Then you want Newsies.

WHAT IS BEAUTY? Join us as we step inside this classic storybook fairytale and discover that beauty isn’t always as it appears. Once upon a time on a bitter winter’s night, a young, selfish and vain prince finds a beggar woman asking for shelter. Disgusted by her appearance, he sends her away. The old woman transforms into a magical enchantress who places a curse upon the prince to appear as hideous on the outside as he is on the inside. Given a magical rose, he must learn to love and find love in return before the last petal drops, or he is doomed to remain a beast forever. But who could ever learn to love a beast? One of Disney’s most beloved animated films comes to life on stage with all the enchanted castle characters in a holiday extravaganza that will thrill, entertain and amaze young and old alike. Be our guest this holiday season, and celebrate the power and wonder of theater with us and our two-story Christmas tree in a lobby decorated to create memories that last a lifetime.
