Disney’s high-energy, hit Broadway musical!
Based on actual events, from New York City 1899! Jack Kelly and his ragtag team of newsboys make a meager living selling newspapers on the city streets. But when the prices of “papes” are hiked and the newsies are hung out to dry, there is nothing left to do but “open the gates and seize the day!” The Newsies organize a strike against Joseph Pulitzer, the greedy publisher of the New York World. But can a group of idealistic newsboys win against such a powerful foe? With incredible dancing and inspiring songs, this musical is a treat for the whole family!
