Disney’s Newsies


Stop the presses and seize the day! Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Disney’s Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies” in New York City at the turn of the twentieth century. 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! Disney’s Newsiesis packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family! This show is suitable for most audiences.
