DISNEY’s Newsies

March 22 (7:30pm); March 23 (8:00pm)

Friendshuh Stage in the Florance Center

Inspired by the true story of the 1899 Newsboys Strike in New York City, a 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 stand up for what’s right. Led by charismatic Jack Kelly and independent, young newspaper reporter Katherine Plummer, the Newsies begin to organize against the publisher of the New York World.

DISNEY’S NEWSIES Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

The March 23 performance will begin at 8:00pm to allow for those who wish to support the DeLaSalle boys’ basketball team in the state championship game at 5:00pm.
