Newsies

Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Disney’s Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets.

Inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899,’ when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against powerful newspaper publishers. This timely and fresh fictionalized adaptation addresses age-old themes of social injustice, exploitative labor practices, and David-versus-Goliath struggles as the young learn to harness their power against a corrupt establishment.

This all singing, all dancing, high-energy show features a score by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman including “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York” and “Santa Fe.”

Show times at 2:00 PM and 7:30 PM. Call 207-725-8769 or visit www.msmt.org for tickets!

Small Changes Workshop

A crash course on the four cornerstones of health!

Don’t want the commitment of a 3 month program? Just curious on how the four cornerstones (relaxation, sleep, movement, and food) enable your well being? Want a glimpse into how you can be healthy with just a few small changes?

How about cramming it all into one day – 5 hours with a lunch demonstration provided? You’ll get an overview of all the components of why this program is so successful, walk away with the tools to implement on your own as well as numerous giveaways and handouts, and you’ll also have a healthy lunch cooked right in front of you.

Grab a friend and join us for an enthusiastic, interactive event with the potential to change your life!

Limited registrations – $110
