PHCS Follies students to perform 'Newsies'
Monday, December 9, 2019 - 5:21 pm

This year, the PHCS Follies students will perform Disney's 'Newsies' in the Proscenium Theater at SUNY Potsdam's Performing Arts Center. Based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, the musical tells the story of Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy who dreams of a life as an artist away from the big city. After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys' expense, Kelly and his fellow newsies take action. Shows will be held on Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. There will also be a matinee on Saturday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 per adult and $5 per student. Tickets can be purchased online at https://www.showtix4u.com/event-details/36141 and will also be available at the door. Photo submitted by Jennifer Blevins.
