Book by Harvey Fierstein

Synopsis

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 (Little Shop of HorrorsSister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now 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.

By Matt Cox

Synopsis

Praised for its comedy and staging, Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic is a hilarious and magical play by New York-based playwright Matt Cox.

For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs...who just happened to be there too. Wayne Hopkins is a regular boy who finds out he’s a wizard and goes to the same certain Wizard School where he makes two best friends and has adventures. This perhaps sounds familiar. But, Wayne is sorted as a Puff, and he and the other Puffs simply want to learn how to be wizards and how to get through seven increasingly dangerous years of school.

The lovable characters in this story are “Funny, intelligent, silly, heartwarming, a little worn and slightly ignored.” Ultimately, Puffs is a tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world. Go Badgers!

Music by Richard Rodgers
Lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II
Book by Douglas Carter Beane

Synopsis

While there have been many mountings of this story both on screen and on stage, the 2013 adaptation of Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella was the first version with the iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein score mounted on Broadway. Notable songs include “In My Own Little Corner,” “The Prince is Giving A Ball,” and “Impossible/It’s Possible.”  The new book by Douglas Carter Beane introduces several new characters, including a sympathetic stepsister, and features several additions from Rodgers and Hammerstein collection.

The story revolves around a young woman forced into a life of servitude by her cruel stepmother.  Ella dreams of a better life; and with the help of her Fairy Godmother, Marie, she is transformed into a strikingly beautiful lady and attends the ball to meet her prince.  Not only does she get her happy ending, she also opens the Prince’s eyes to the injustice in the kingdom.
