S.A.G.E.S. 55+ (Social and Service Ministry)

SAGES 55+ have 40 tickets available to see “Newsies” at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres on Thursday Evening June 21st.  The senior/group rate for tickets is $62 which includes dinner and the show.  Sign-up will begin in April with payment due by mid-May. Make checks to Christine Roehler.  Rides will be provided for those in need.

“Newsies” is loosely based on the New York City Newsboys Strike of 1899 when the newsboys went against wealthy newspaper publishers over the cost of papers.  This real strike led to the beginning of change for working children at the turn of the century.  When the show opened on Broadway in 2012 it won two Tony awards for Best Original Score and Best Choreography.  The Chanhassen Dinner Theaters production is exciting and energetic leaving you tapping your toes and singing a song.
