Newsies, The Broadway Musical

Rutland Youth Theatre presents Newsies, the Broadway Musical to celebrate the holidays, December 14th and 15th at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland.

It’s time to carry the banner! Produced and directed by Saskia Hagen Groom, musical directed by Saige King and choreographed by Tegan Waite, Newsies, the Broadway Musical is based on the true historical strike of newspaper boys in NYC in 1899. The story is set in turn-of-the century New York City, and tells 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!

 The newspaper boys’ strike of 1899 was a youth-led campaign to force change in the way that Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst’s newspapers compensated their child labor force of newspaper hawkers. The strike lasted two weeks, causing Pulitzer’s New York World to reduce its circulation from 360,000 to 125,000.

The story is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

Stage Manager is Barb Lassen.

Show times at the Paramount Theatre are December 14th 7pm and December 15th 2pm and 7pm at the Paramount Theatre in Rutland. Tickets just $10 for children and seniors, $12 for adults at www.paramountvt.org.

RYT presents The Snow Queen

Award-winning Rutland Youth Theatre presents one of the most beautiful of all fairy tales, The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, adapted by Stewart Paterson and Music by Savourna Stevenson.

Produced by Saskia Hagen Groom and directed by Mikki Lane, the timeless appeal of The Snow Queen lies in its persuading us that life is truly magical. Andersen’s wonderful language surfaces in Grandma’s description of the Snow Queen—”On winter nights when we are asleep she flies silently through the streets and alleyways. Sometimes she stops to look through a window, and when you get up the window is covered with flowers of frost for she has breathed on the glass.” The wicked Snow Queen casts her icy spell on the world, turns young Kay’s heart to ice and takes him away as her eternal prisoner to her Ice Palace at the very top of the world. Gerda, Kay’s friend, must journey forever north and brave many dangers in her attempt to save Kay and break Winter’s grip. Gerda never gives up. She leads us through terrifying ordeals as well as endless fun and nonsense. A long the way Gerda encounters talking ravens, the evil Cobweb Spider, a prince and princess, a band of robbers and the wild robber-girl, greedy polar bears and the brave reindeer who carries Gerda across the artic wastes. This is a wonderful, fast-paced adventure story.

Stage Manager is Missy Knipes.

Show times are October 12th at 7pm and October 13th at 2pm and 7pm at the Theatre at Rutland Intermediate School. Tickets just $6 children/seniors and $8 adults.

For more information visit our website at www.rutlandrec.com/theatre or call Mikki Lane at (802) 683-0019.

Friday 7PM

Adults: $10 – Under 12/Senior: $8
Presented by Rutland Youth Theatre

Honk, Jr, the Musical is a heartwarming celebration of being different that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score. Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother’s protective flapping.

Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be.

Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, Honk! Jr. the Musical will treat audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears.
