Mu­si­cal treat at cin­ema

The Oban Times - - News -

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.
