“Inspirational storytelling in the best possible sense.”
In the summer of 1899, the newsboys of New York City took on two of the most powerful men in the country — Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst — and won. Inspired by true events, the Broadway smash hit is a testament to the power of standing up and speaking out. The Tony Award-winning musical features fan-favorites like “Carrying the Banner,” “King of New York” and “Seize the Day.” Newsies is “a winning, high-energy musical” (Entertainment Weekly) just in time for the holidays and perfect for the whole family.
Newsies is generously sponsored by George Ftikas in memory of Duffy Ftikas, , The Drutz Family Fund for Musical Theater, , Ilene and Steven Rosenthal and Sheila Stampfli.
Choreography is sponsored by Virginia McGehee Friend.
