They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines! Newsies is a high-energy explosion of song and dance based on the popular 1992 film which became a hit Broadway musical in 2012. It features an incredible score by Alan Menken and is based on the thrilling true story of the Newsboy strike in 1899, when a bunch of rag tag orphans took on the mighty Joe Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst, nearly bringing down the city of New York. The musical features many of the beloved songs from the movie while introducing eight new songs.
