Based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, this new Disney musical tells the story of Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy who dreams of a life as an artist away from the big city. After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys’ expense, Kelly and his fellow newsies take action. With help from the beautiful female reporter Katherine Plumber, all of New York City soon recognizes the power of “the little man.”
Newsies is a fast-paced musical with jaw-dropping choreography, catchy songs by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid), and a book that theatergoers of all ages will enjoy. This is a feel-good family musical that will introduce Newsies to a new generation while pleasing fans of the original 1992 film.
