Why See Newsies - The Musical?
It's 1899 and the Newsies (the street kids who make their dough selling papers on street corners) are on strike. Pitting themselves against New York World publisher Joseph Pulitzer, the guy who's hiking the prices of their 'papes' from 50 cents per 100 to 60 cents, the exploited Newsies look like they might be out of a job, until they band together under the leadership of Jack and form a union to bring the big boss down!
Based on Disney's 1992 cult favorite, Newsies is a big-hearted tale about revolution, friendship and not giving up, with music from Alan Menken (Aladdin) and a book from Harvey Fierstein (Mrs Doubtfire). Telling the true story of the real-life Newsboy strike of 1899, the musical originally premiered on Broadway in 2012, capturing the public's imagination for 1,005 performances. Full of heart-soaring song and dance numbers, the tale of these plucky boys and girls is one the whole family will enjoy.
