ELIDA — Elida High School will present its spring musical “Newsies” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 14; Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16 and 4 p.m. Sunday, March 17 at Elida High School, 401 E. North St., Elida.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for students and $12 for premiere seating for all ages.
The musical is inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City. 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! Newsies is packed with a timeless message, inspiring songs, great dancing and a stellar cast of Elida students, alums and faculty!
