Theater

Missoula Community Theatre presents Disney's "Newsies - The Broadway Musical," 7:30 p.m., MCT Center for the Performing Arts. For the "newsies" of 1899, selling newspapers on the gritty streets of New York City was a constant test of wit and stamina. When greedy publisher, Joseph Pulitzer, raises the price of his paper to cut out the Newsies, the ragtag group raises its voice (“The World Will Know”) and organizes a strike. The boys take on some of the most powerful, ruthless men of the era. A musical filled with energizing anthems and glorious dance, the Tony Award-winning "Newsies" vividly tells a compelling, often comical, story of the human spirit. 728-7529, MCTinc.org

"The Buffalo Play," a premiere of an original work by BetweenTheLines and MT+NYC Collaborative. In a small town jail cell just outside Yellowstone National Park, an East Coast social justice worker awaits her arraignment. Her crime? “Calfnapping.” When she finds herself with a dead baby bison, its mother and a local rancher as her cell mates, she’s forced to reckon with her worldview. Written by Kendra Mylnechuk Potter and Ciara Griffin. 7 p.m. MASC Studio, 1200 Shakespeare St. Tickets are $22 general admission, $16 student/senior/military, artful.ly/store/events/17377.

Hamilton Players present "The Hound of the Baskervilles,"  8 p.m., Hamilton Playhouse. As the action begins Sir Charles Baskerville has died under mysterious circumstances, and his nephew and heir, the young Sir Henry, has been threatened even before his arrival at Baskerville Hall. Enlisting the aid of Sherlock Holmes he sets out for his ancestral home on the Devon moor in the company of Dr. Watson, Holmes' trusted colleague, a journey which brings him to danger, mystery and a series of events which build steadily in menace and suspense. Hard pressed to protect his charge, and to fathom the strange mishaps which beset him, Dr. Watson is much relieved when Holmes himself appears — to trap the diabolical killer who stalks Sir Henry and to unravel the fascinating mystery which accounts for his evil actions. $18 adults, $10 children under 12. 375-9050, hamiltonplayers.com

Theater

Missoula Community Theatre presents Disney's "Newsies — The Broadway Musical," 7:30 p.m., MCT Center for the Performing Arts. For the "newsies" of 1899, selling newspapers on the gritty streets of New York City was a constant test of wit and stamina. When greedy publisher, Joseph Pulitzer, raises the price of his paper to cut out the newsies, the ragtag group raises its voice (“The World Will Know”) and organizes a strike. The boys take on some of the most powerful, ruthless men of the era. A musical filled with energizing anthems and glorious dance, the Tony Award-winning "Newsies" vividly tells a compelling, often comical, story of the human spirit. 728-7529, MCTinc.org
