THEATER | "Newsies" 

Inspired by the Newsboy Strike of 1899, the Tony - award winning production, "Newsies" visits Rochester and shares the story of Jack Kelly. A newsboy, and leader of other teenaged newsies, Kelly hopes for a better life in New York City at the time of the turn of the century. Directed by Jeff Calhoun, "Newsies" was originally intended for a Broadway run of 101 performances, but extended its run due to popular demand. "Newsies" has set and broken seven Nederlander Theatre House records and was the highest-grossing show from the 2011-12 Broadway season.

The show features Dan DeLuca as Jack Kelly, Steve Blanchard as Joseph Pulitzer, and Stephanie Styles as Katherine. The production will run from October 6 through October 11 at the Auditorium Theatre. Tuesday through Thursday, the shows are at 7:30 p.m., Friday, at 8 p.m., Saturday, at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday, at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Auditorium Theatre Box Office online at or call 800-745-3000. The theater is located at 885 East Main Street.
