Trips

Disney Newsies – September 18

Join us for a trip to Paramount Theatre in Aurora to see a Broadway performance of Disney’s Newsies! 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.  Newsies is refreshing, inspirational and a huge feel-good show for the whole family. Want good news? Then you want Newsies. A catered lunch of caesar salad, rolls, chicken marsala served with wild rice, green beans and dessert will be served.  Register by August 27!
