Join us for an award-winning musical performance of Newsies at the historic Paramount Theatre in Aurora, Illinois. While Joseph Pulitzer plots a way to increase profits for his New York City newspaper, the newsboys organize a strike against him. Newsies is a rousing musical based on a true story that has become a big hit. Before arriving to the theatre for the matinee show, we'll enjoy lunch at the quaint and cozy Fireside Grille.
