Newsies–A Broadway Musical
November 12 @ 7:00 pm - November 14 @ 5:00 pm$7
Inspired by the Newsboys Strike of 1899 and adapted from the 1992 Disney film, Newsies became an unlikely Broadway hit in 2012. Although Newsies is ultimately a work of fiction, the historical strike that took place in New York in July 1899 was every bit as dramatic. It lasted over two weeks and was well documented by dozens of newspapers, which relished a bunch of kids bringing down their goliath competition: the New York World. While the newsboys of 1899 didn’t fill the streets with song and dance, these Newsies are sure to draw you into the story with their voices, fancy dance moves and acrobatic tricks.
Performances are 7-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights, and 2-5 p.m. Sunday (with intermissions).
Buy tickets here or get them at the door. General admission tickets are $7. Free admission for children younger than seven.
