It's time 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 charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," and "Santa Fe," Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

Originally conceived on April 21, 1950, as a not-for-profit theatrical organization, the Springfield Municipal Opera Association transformed a 55-acre wheat field into an outdoor amphitheater. On June 17, 1950, thousands of people viewed the opening night performance of our first production, The Merry Widow.
The Muni produces four shows a season, and each summer the Muni audience continues to grow. With support from our sponsors, enthusiastic audiences, and a dedicated and talented corps of volunteers onstage and backstage, the Muni has become one of the largest community theaters in the Midwest. We believe that we are the largest organization of our type in the country that is completely self-supporting, dependent on neither grants, nor tax dollars.
For more than 60 years, we have entertained thousands of people each summer with the best in musical theatre. The Muni is a unique jewel in Springfield's landscape – a beautiful site tucked away at the lake that offers families and friends a venue to spend time together, volunteer, perform, direct and enjoy quality entertainment.
Each year, great thought and consideration are given to developing the season. It is our goal not only to provide you with shows that are familiar but also new productions. We are proud to be part of this community and grateful for your continued support.
When weather is threatening, the Muni consults with the National Weather Service to determine whether or not a show should be canceled for the safety of our patrons, volunteers, and our cast and crew members.
In the event of inclement weather, the Muni reserves the right to hold the start of a performance for a maximum of one hour. The Muni may interrupt a show for a maximum of 30 minutes before cancellation. If a show has played for a total of one hour, rain checks will not be issued. If a show is cancelled and has not played for a total of one hour or to intermission, retain your ticket stub. Your reserved-seat ticket stub may be exchanged for a seat at a subsequent performance. However, the same seat location is not guaranteed. Patrons holding general admission tickets may retain their ticket stub or obtain rain checks before leaving the theater. A performance has not been cancelled until an announcement has been made from the speaker system.
