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.
