7 p.m. The San Clemente High School Drama department will put on a production of the Disney hit Newsies this weekend and the next. It tells the story of the newsboy strike of 1899 and is packed with high-energy song and dance. Jack Kelly and his ragtag team of newsboys make a meager living selling newspapers on the city streets of New York City. But when the prices of “papes” are hiked and the newsies are hung out to dry, there is nothing left to do but “open the gates and seize the day!” Led by charismatic Jack and independent, young newspaper reporter Katherine Plumber, the newsies form a union and organize a strike against the greedy publisher of the New York World. Can a group of idealistic newsboys win against a foe as powerful as acclaimed publisher Joseph Pulitzer? The score includes the show-stopping “Seize the Day,” power ballad “Santa Fe” and lovely new songs including Katherine’s “Watch What Happens.” The show runs Oct. 6-8 and Oct. 13-15 outdoors, under the stars. Seize the day, grab a beach chair, and join SCHS Drama for an evening of entertainment. Gates open at 6:15 p.m. and guests should plan to arrive by 6:30 p.m. Admission ranges from $15 to $20. SCHS Upper Campus, 189 Avenida La Cuesta.
