Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
Set in turn-of-the century New York City and based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!

Speaker: Dr. Carter Jones, Board certified in both Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine with a Ph.D. in Pharmacology.
Chronic pain is a common and complex medical problem. Historically, opioids have been a mainstay of treatment for patients with pain, however their inappropriate use has revealed serious consequences, without demonstrating evidence of benefit, especially with long-term use. In contrast, there are many distinct non-opioid therapies that have been shown to produce sustained improvements in both pain and function. The goal of this talk is to discuss what non-opioid treatments are available for chronic pain and the evidence to support them, from conservative approaches like psychotherapy to more invasive techniques like spinal cord stimulation. By combining these approaches, most patients can achieve a life of satisfactory pain control and function.
