This year’s productions are Newsies and Mamma Mia and both are sure to excite and enthrall every audience. These shows ROCK!

Newsies has a dozen tunes you’ll walk out humming (it’s written by Alan Menken, writer of Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors, Aladdin and more) like Seize the Day, The World Will Know and Once and For All!

Mamma Mia is full of ABBA classics and is a high energy show that ends with a pretty special curtain call finale that will have you dancing in the aisles.

Performances of Newsies are July 12-14, 2019 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Performances of Mamma Mia are July 26-28, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for kids and are available at or by calling 724-439-1360.
