In the lobby of Dixon Hall, Diane Lala, left, directs cast members while freelance photographer Michael Palumbo, right, takes pictures during a photo shoot for “Newsies,” the final production of the 2018 season of Summer Lyric Theatre at Tulane. The photographs will be used in a promotional poster to publicize the show, which is directed by Lala and runs from Aug. 2–5. Summer Lyric is the first theater in Louisiana to present the play, based on the real-life story of the newsboys’ strike of 1899 in New York City.
