Theater
Rhinebeck: Center for Perfroming Arts: Up In One Productions is proud to present Disney’s Newsies. Based on the 1992 motion picture, the Broadway musical hit features a score by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy). Set in New York City at the turn of the century, and inspired by the real life “Newsboy Strike of 1899”, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. Timely and fresh, the fictionalized adaptation of Newsies addresses age-old themes of social injustice, exploitative labor practices and David-versus-Goliath struggles as the young learn to harness their power against a corrupt establishment. Directed and choreographed by Kevin Archambault, music directed by Cheryl B. Engelhardt, produced by Diana di Grandi.Starring Terrence Boyer, Maria Coppola, Dietz Farcher, Brayden Giannelli, Mark Grunblatt, Jody Satriani, & Wendell Scherer. With Chris Backofen, Jordan Castro, Erin Hebert, Joe Felece, Howie Riggs, Ken Thompson, Jessie Truin & Thom Webb. Along with 20 of the harderst working singers and dancers in the Hudson Valley! 3 pm. (845) 876-3080  http://www.centerforperformingarts.org/whats-playing/item/newsies?category_id=34→

Chorale
West Park, NY: Holy Cross Monastery: Bach Cantata Series under  the direction of Dr. Edward Lundergan. The cantatas are performed in the context of evensong, a meditative vespers tradition that can be traced to the medieval church. The service provides an unparalleled opportunity to hear Bach's cantatas, which are among his most significant and celebrated compositions, in the context for which they were written. Evensong is remarkably inclusive: People of all faiths and of none return year after year. It is a contemplative, joyful observance, and offers impeccable and poignant performances of Bach's most intimate and spiritual music. The series has become an integral part of the cultural and musical life of the Hudson Valley, and continues to receive wide critical acclaim. Evensong is always free to the public, and all are welcome, regardless of religious affiliation (or lack thereof). A $10 suggested donation helps fund the Bach Cantata Series and ensure its continuity. 3 pm. 845-256-9114  http://www.kairosconsort.org
