Miami University Hamilton Parrish Auditorium

In 1899, New York City got its news from an army of ragged orphans and runaways. These “newsies” dreamed of a better life away from the hardship of the streets while they fought to survive on pennies a day. But when publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer decides to raise the price of the “papes,” the newsies must band together to take action against their ruthless boss. Can they stand firm and ultimately enact change to protect working kids across the city?

The Brightside Music & Event Venue [Dayton]

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun!
