2019 Season Update

We’re pleased to announce our 2019 summertime lineup.


Our first big Amphitheater show, Newsies, will play in June. Directed and choreographed by Susan DeMill, with Tricia Swanson as music director, this rousing tale of a ragged band of teenage newsboys taking on the titans of publishing is full of great music (score by Alan Menken) and spectacular dancing. Newsies will run June 1, 3, 7, 8, 10, 14, and 15.

PerformancesJune 1, 3, 7, 8, 10, 14, 15 at Draper Amphitheater
