Newsies

July 10, 2019 through July 20, 2019
No performance Sunday, July 14, 2019
Showtime: 8:00 pm

Inspired by the famous Newsboys Strike in NYC in 1899 and adapted from the 1992 Disney Movie w/Christian Bale, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing 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 and in doing so, win the hearts of America along the way. The stage musical was originally performed at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey and critics raved: “…completely and deeply wonderful. It is in the best sense of the word, an old-fashioned musical with tap dancing, soaring ballads, toe tapping tunes, and a story that is fantastically timely. I believe in heart… humor… emotion, and I think Newsies has all of those things…”
