Disney’s Newsies The Musical - the Tony Award-winning Broadway show is based on the historical newsboy strike of 1899 that shook the ivory towers of William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. This band of underdogs lead by Jack Kelly rally to take a stand and strike against the most powerful newspaper publishers in the country. Soon their cause becomes even bigger than any of the newsies imagined when they realize they’re fighting for all the children working in unfair and unsafe conditions across the nation. It will leap onto the stage with soul stirring music, amazing heart, and stunning choreography.

Music by Alan Menken. Lyrics by Jack Feldman. Book by Harvey Fierstein
