Based on the 1992 musical film and inspired by a true story, Newsies takes us back to the New York City newsboy strike of 1899. Jack Kelly, the charismatic leader of a ragtag band of paperboys, dreams of a life far from the hardship of the streets. But when ruthless publishing titan, Joseph Pulitzer, raises prices at the boys’ expense, Jack rallies “newsies” from across the city to strike, take a stand, and fight.
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.
