Newsies

Book: Harvey Fierstein
Music: Alan Menken
Lyrics: Jack Feldman
Based on: Disney film written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White
Originally Produced By: Disney Theatrical Productions

This Tony Award®-winning musical proves that social injustice and unfair labor practices are always front-page news. Based on the real-life newsboy strike of 1899 and the 1992 Disney move, Newsies follows a rag-tag band of teenage newsboys who go on strike against newspaper publishers to demand their rights. Along with film favorites like “Carrying the Banner” and “Seize the Day”, the stage production introduces eight new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman.

The strike beings when Pulitzer and Hearst raise distribution prices on their papers, forcing the newspaper boys to sell more to earn a living. Jack Kelly steps up to lead the newsies, rallying underpaid newsboys across the city to stand up to the publishing titans. A friendly reporter’s interest in the story leads to a budding romance with Jack and publicity for the cause, but will the pressure be enough to make them bow to what’s right?

Enjoyable for All Ages
