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!

Formerly Paws for a Cause, SAVE A STRAY 5K is a event to raise money for shelter animals at Coastal Humane Society of Brunswick and sister shelter Lincoln County Animal Shelter of Edgecomb. Our two wonderful shelters merged in the summer of 2016. Nearly 3,500 animals come through our doors every year, and 97% of those animals leave our facilities for loving homes. We serve 40 towns along Maine’s mid-coast, covering over 1,000 square miles and over 150,00 people. But our adopters come from all over! Join us, and bring your friends (both human and canine!) for a beautiful August morning in Maine to support shelter pets. Many of us have shelter pets, and they mean the world to us. Here’s our chance to make surethese animals get everything they need until they make it home where they belong.
Please ask your friends and family to support you in SAVE A STRAY. Every little bit counts! Did you know $25 can feed 10 cats for a week? That $50 can vaccinate 5 animals? That $100 can spay or neuter 3 animals? Donations can be made quickly and easily online (paper pledge sheets are available by request).
Whether you’re running the 5K through downtown Freeport or enjoying a shorter walk route with friends, your participation makes the difference for our shelter residents.
