In this hilarious sequel to Lend Me a Tenor, we have one hotel suite, four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a
soccer stadium filled with screaming fans. What could possibly go wrong? It’s 1930s Paris and the stage is set for
the concert of the century – as long as producer Henry Saunders can keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hotblooded
wife, Maira, from causing runaway chaos. Prepare for an uproarious ride, full of mistaken iden``es,
bedroom hijinks, and madcap delight.

It's `me to carry the banner on your stage with Disney's Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies
is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charisma`c newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When `tans of
publishing raise distribu`on prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike
against the unfair condi`ons and fight for what's right! Based on the 1992 mo`on picture and inspired by a true
story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (LiAle Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack
Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs
