It is the turn of the 20th century and revolution is in the air. In this captivating tale, a rag-tag group of teenage newspaper sellers navigate the gruelling and unforgiving streets in desperate search of a more promising life. When talk hits town that newspaper tycoon Joseph Pulitzer is increasing the price charged to newsies for papers a battle for justice ensues, with Jack Kelly rallying together his fellow newsies from all across the city in the hopes of leading them in an uprising against the wealthy publishers' deceitful exploitation.

From as early as I can recall, writing has always been my passion. Being able to combine this with my love for theatre has been a rewarding and exhilarating experience. I truly believe that there is magic in seeing a story brought to life on stage, and this is what I would like to promote to audiences.
