Thirsty for History Thursdays at the Fulton

How can we connect the history of Lancaster to upcoming productions such as The Addams Family, Elf, and Legally Blonde?

fulton-exterior-655x400Find out by joining LancasterHistory.org for Thirsty for History Thursday at the Fulton Theatre! Before curtain on the second Thursday of each major Fulton production, LancasterHistory.org makes the connection between each play and local history. We've connected it all---from Hairspray and the Civil Rights movement and local bands to The Phantom of the Opera and ghost stories about the Fulton Theatre. We've even found ties between Spamalot and Lancaster County as we delved into the history of the Kunzler Hot Dog Factory and discussed the Lancaster equivalent of the Holy Grail-an engraved glass chalice (or pokal) made by Henry William Stiegal at his glassworks in the 18th century.

To enjoy a fantastic performance and an entertaining historical social hour, purchase your tickets by calling the Fulton Theatre at 717-397-7425.

Thirsty for History, LancasterHistory.org Night at the Fulton

Newsies


Image with newspaper in background with text "Disney's Newsies."The toast of Broadway for over two years, Newsies is based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899. Day in and day out a young group of scrappy and spirited newsboys carry the banner, hoping for a major headline so they can sell enough “papes” to survive the harrowing streets of New York City… until they become the headline! Publishers Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst have unfairly raised the distribution prices of the newspapers and rabble-rouser Jack Kelly isn’t going to take it! He pulls together, and fearlessly leads, an ardent band of newsies to strike, taking on some of the most powerful names in New York, and standing up against corporate power and greed.
