Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing, Randolph and Hurst, raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!  Their fight brought the two major American newspapers to their knees and changed the course of our nation's history with the development of child labor laws that still protect our youth today.

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 high energy music, dance and is very timely in its inspiring message of rising up to make a difference, "Newsies" is an amazing experience for both audience and performers.
