Shane Center carries the banner w/ Disney’s Newsies
Stop the presses! The Disney film turned Broadway hit comes to Livingston’s Shane Lalani Center for the Arts this summer. The Shane is delighted to present the inspiring musical Newsies in the Dulcie Theatre through July 21st.
Set in New York City at the turn of the century and based on a true story, Disney’s Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of ‘newsies,’ who dreams 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 and take a stand for what’s right.
Disney’s Newsies runs weekends from through July 21st in the Dulcie Theatre at the Shane Lalani Center. Performances will take place Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, followed by Sunday matinees at 3 pm. Tickets to all shows are $18 for adults, $14 for seniors and college students, and $10 for youth 17 and under. To make reservations, visit www.theshanecenter.org or call the box office at (406) 222-1420. The Shane Center is located at 415 E Lewis St.
