Disney's NEWSIES

Jul 19, 2018 - Sep 02, 2018

Music by Alan Menken • Lyrics by Jack Feldman • Book by Harvey Fierstein
Based on the Disney film written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White

Directed by Justin Anderson
Musical Direction by Ann-Carol Pence
Choreography by Ricardo Aponte

Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, this high-energy musical soars with rousing dance numbers and non-stop thrills. In New York City at the turn of the century, publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst look to take advantage of newsboys to increase profits. Enter charismatic Jack Kelly who unwittingly leads a ragged band of teenaged "newsies," across the city to strike for what’s right. This Tony Award-winning musical, based on the timeless Disney film, is toe-tapping fun for the entire family.

Running Time: Approximately 2.5 hours,
including one 15-minute intermission
