If you’d like to make plans for dinner and a show, the Patriot Theatre Company has organized a Dining for Dollars fundraiser with Joanie’s Pizzeria in Long Grove, and Culver’s in Buffalo Grove and Lincolnshire. If you mention “Stevenson Theatre” when ordering Friday through Sunday you’ll be supporting local and the Patriot Theatre Company.
This is a family-friendly musical set in turn-of-the-century New York City. Newsies is the tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenage “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.
Once again, another amazing production by the Patriot Theatre Company and Stevenson Division of Fine Arts. Congratulations to all involved with this show!
