Fortunately, no fire extinguishers were necessary after alarms cleared the building during Saturday’s performance of “Newsies.”

The cast of “Newsies” was “on fire” after almost selling out its first two performances; so much so that the cast was evacuated from the building in the middle of their third performance. 

On Saturday, March 2, fire alarms started to go off during the beginning of act one, which forced everyone to clear the building. 

The fire departments were called and were sent over to make sure that everything was okay and to clear the school.

Director, Clinton Ambs, evacuated the audience to the front and side parking lots while the cast was evacuated out of the back of the building. 

After being outside for 20 minutes, the building was cleared and the stage was set to start from where the cast had left off. 

Ambs told the cast to keep it professional, carry on with the performance like nothing had happened and give the audience the best show that that it has ever seen. 

As it was a sold out show, the auditorium was still completely full of people who came back to watch the cast do what it does best.  

There are theories of what had made the alarms go off in the first place, but no official answer was given. “The Delphi” reached out to the administration for comment, but no reply was received by publication.
