Stop the presses!
This Disney film turned Tony-winning Broadway hit inspires everyone to fight for what’s right and seize the day. With spectacular choreography and tons of exciting lead roles for everyone, Newsies is pure energy and fun!
It’s time to carry the banner on our stage with Disney’s Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic “newsie” and leader of a band of teenaged newspaper hawkers. When the titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsies’ expense, Jack rallies others from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, 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,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
