Why See Newsies: The Musical?

Changing destiny, making the news!

Part of the 2017 Marriott Theatre season, this local production of the hit Broadway musical Newsies will storm the stage this fall, in an electric story of the 1899 New York newsboys who made their living hawking papers, but in the face of rising prices and poor wages, started to make the headlines themselves by going on strike! Newsies is based on Disney's 1992 film (starring a young Christian Bale), which is in turn based on real events, and won two Tony Awards for Best Score and Choreography in 2012.

Displaying classic Broadway flair, Newsies is filled cover to cover with unforgettable songs ('Seize the Day' and 'King of New York') and a defiant tale of feisty kids making a difference. Orphaned, homeless yet determined to succeed, New York's newsboys live urchin-like, dreaming of a better life. In the meantime, the popular and charismatic Jack and friends have got more than just dodging juvenile detention centre on his mind. The newspaper editors are inflating their prices, meaning the newsies can't afford to sell them. Now is the time to pull together, create strength in numbers and protest! Join Jack on the adventure of his life as he finds the courage and the hope to change his destiny!
