The city’s premier summer event is stretching to two days this year. Save the date for Newcastle Days, Sept. 11-12.

The day before the main Sept. 12 festival, the city will host “Broadway at Boren,” a theater production on the stage at Lake Boren Park, followed by a family fun concert featuring ’50s, ’60s and ’70’s music.

“Broadway at Boren” is meant to be a true community event, with Newcastle residents making up the onstage talent.

The city will host auditions for the Sept. 11 concert. Come prepared with a one-minute song from any Broadway show. Bring sheet music in the appropriate key; accompanist will be provided. No recordings or a cappella singing.

“We’re looking for groups, duets and solos,” Kirchner said. “Sing your favorite piece for auditions and maybe we’ll include it in the show.” Read more
