What is Newsies about?

There’s no fake news here, Newsies tells the true story of the Newsboys strike of 1899.

Tired of Joseph Pulitzer and other publishers taking more than their fair share of their hard-earned wages, young workers, led by Manhattan newsboy Jack Kelly, made headlines as they formed their own union and made their voices heard. Their historical stand forever changed the future of workers' rights.

Adapted from the cult-classic Disney film of the same name, this bold and balletic production features all the beloved songs of the multi-award-winning movie, including ‘King of New York,’ ‘Seize the Day,’ and ‘Sante Fe’.
