STRAIGHT FROM THE HEADLINES of turn of the century New York comes the true story that had Broadway roaring before it even opened. Featuring unforgettable songs audiences have fallen in love with again and again and a story that will make you want to stand up and cheer, Newsies is the perfect show to open up our ninth season.
High in the skyscrapers of New York City, Joseph Pulitzer is plotting a way to increase the revenue of his declining newspaper; while down in the streets, newsboys hawk papers on corners barely making enough to survive. When Pulitzer raises the price of the paper, delivery boy Jack Kelly organizes a strike to show Pulitzer and his gang of cronies they’re not going to be pushed into the gutter.
Based on the 1992 movie, Newsies is a rousing musical nominated for 8 Tony Awards, winning Best Choreography and Best Score. Featuring music from Alan Menken, the 8-time Oscar-winning genius behind scores from some of the most popular Disney films of all time, including Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas and Beauty and the Beast, Newsies is refreshing, inspirational and a huge feel-good show for the whole family. Want good news? Then you want Newsies.
