In order to meet COVID-19 regulations this semester, MUSKET is presenting a virtual concert featuring music from the Broadway show Newsies! The story follows a rag tag group of newsboys as they take on New York City's most powerful publishing giants, Joesph Pulitzer and William Hearst. Based on historical events from 1899, this modern take highlights the importance of standing up and speaking out against injustice. With an empowering and energizing score, you won't want to miss this concert!
