Based on the 1992 Disney movie about the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899. Set in New York City at the turn of the twentieth century, Disney’s Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. With help from the intrepid reporter Katherine Plumber, all of New York City soon recognizes the power of young people.
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," "Sieze the Day," and "Santa Fe," Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message.
