Musical treat at cinema
TWO avid musical theatre fans were delighted to learn Oban Phoenix Cinema answered their request to show the live screening of Disney’s Newsies
The Musical next month. Ellie Cooper and Louisa Hyde approached the cinema after hearing it might be able to convince the distributor that there could be an audience for the musical in Oban.
Ellie said: ‘The closest screening would be Glasgow so we thought we would ask the cinema if there would be any chance of hosting it.
‘They confirmed that if there was enough interest they could do it. I got straight onto Facebook, putting out a plea for any interested parties to get in touch.’
Newsies The Musical is a musical based on the 1992 film New
sies inspired by the newsboys’ strike of 1899 in New York City.
The screening will be on Sunday February 19 at 7pm.
