MARQUETTE- “Newsies” The Broadway Musical is coming to the Forest Roberts Theatre.
The production is based on the 1992 movie and inspired by a true story of Newsboys in New York City from the 1890’s. 

The cast is made up of members of the Superior Arts Youth Theater.
They held a dress rehearsal tonight for their upcoming performances starting tomorrow through Sunday.
Those involved say it’s a show all ages will enjoy.

Alexxus Taavola, Mush, says, “It’s an extremely powerful show, it is not only fun to watch and not only exciting, but you feel all the emotions that these kids are going through. These kids are striking and they’re not having dinner, they don’t have families to go to, they have each other and that’s it. And you can feel that, really, because the actors are giving such a strong energy throughout the entire show.”

Tickets available are available at all NMU ticket outlets including: The Berry Events Center, Forest Roberts Theatre, NMU Bookstore and Cats Corner Store. Or purchase by phone at: 906-227-1032 or online at https://tickets.nmu.edu.
