The Yellow Door Theatre Project of Niagara-on-the-Lake is back this holiday season with another production brought to you by the talented young performers of the Niagara region.

They’ll be hosting productions of “Newsies,” the Disney film-turned-Broadway musical, from Dec. 6 to 9 at the Robertson Theatre at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre in St. Catharines.

Originally debuting in 1992, “Newsies” was inspired by the newsboys’ strike of 1899 in New York City.

The play has won two Tony Awards for Best Original Score, and is known for its most popular songs including “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day” and “Santa Fe.”

Yellow Door hosted another production at the performing arts centre in St. Catharines this past July 15, where a cast of young performers brought the musical “Mary Poppins Jr.” to life.

Tickets are selling fast.

The matinees at 10 a.m. from Dec. 6 to 8 are already sold out, but tickets are still available for evening performances at 7:30 p.m. on all four dates, as well the matinee performance on Saturday, Dec. 9 at 1 p.m.

Tickets are $40 for adults, $30 for seniors and $30 for students under age 13.
