About the Show

“…a cheerfully old-fashioned mix of a stirring story with a catchy score.”
Disney’s Newsies is the exuberant story of paperboy Jack Kelly and a group of orphan and runaway newsies on the streets of 1899 New York. When the titans of publishing raise prices at the cost of the newsies’ livelihood, Jack marches forward to fight for what’s right! This Tony Award-winning musical adaptation of the 1992 film holds a timeless message for the whole family.

Disney’s Newsies is presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
