Newsies | Musical Theatre West | Jul 12-28


Disney’s Newsies is a powerful dance musical that tells the story of the paperboys known as “newsies” 


<!-- EMBEDDED YOUTU.BE URL: --> they fight to win fair wages from newspaper tycoon Joseph Pulitzer. Based on the historical New York newsies strike of 1899, Newsies tells the story of the (fictional) Jack Kelly, as he leads his fellow newsies to stand against unfair treatment from the newspaper companies.

With help from a young reporter, Katherine Plumber, Jack and his friends have a chance to change their world, but when the strike doesn’t turn out as planned, the entire movement teeters on the edge of collapse. The strike will fail unless all the newsies of New York, from Brooklyn to the Bronx, seize the day and stand together to make their voices heard.
