Disney's NewsiesWCT19NEW IG

Performed by the Whitby Courthouse Theatre Youth Group 

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!

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Featuring the classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

It's Only a PlayWCT19IOP WEB2

It’s the opening night of The Golden Egg on Broadway, and the wealthy producer Julia Budder is throwing a lavish party in her Manhattan townhouse. Downstairs, the celebrities are pouring in, but the real action is upstairs in the bedroom, where a group of insiders have staked themselves out to await the reviews.

The group includes the playwright; the unstable director; the pill-popping leading lady; and the playwright’s best friend, who passed up this production for a television series.

Add to this a drama critic who’s panned the playwright in the past and a new-in-town aspiring singer, and you have a prime recipe for the narcissism, ambition, childishness, and just plain irrationality that infuse the theatre — and for comedy.

Advisory: Adult language and drug use.

Little Women The Broadway MusicalWCT20LWM WEB

The timeless, captivating story is now a multi-award winning Broadway musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope, and everlasting love.

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s classic 1869 semi-autobiographical novel, it focuses on the four March sisters — traditional Meg, wild, aspiring writer Jo, timid Beth, and romantic Amy at home in Concord, Massachusetts.

Struggling while their father is away serving as a Union Army chaplain during the Civil War, the young March women’s lives unfold through several recreations of melodramatic short stories Jo writes in her attic studio.

Program sponsored by Trafalgar Castle School.
