A Musical based on the Disney Film
Music By Alan Menken Lyrics by Jack Feldman
Book by Harvey Fierstein
Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. Newsies is a David-versus-Goliath struggle suitable for the whole family.
Rated: G, for the entire family.
