Disney's Newsies, the hit musical that took Broadway by storm is coming to western Manitoba October 18-20!
With incredible dance numbers, unforgettable songs written by Academy Award®-winning composer Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas), and a timely and inspirational story, Newsies is an unforgettable musical and not-to-be-missed, high-energy show for all ages.
Newsies is the story of a band of underdogs who took on the most powerful names in New York in a fight for what's right. The poor and orphaned teenagers, selling newspapers for a penny a paper, are pushed trhe limit when newspaper moguls Hearst and Pulitzer try to take away more of their meager profits. Jack Kelly becomes the leader who rallies the newsies from across the city to take a stand and strike against the most powerful publishers in the country. Their cause becomes even bigger than any of the newsiesimagined when they realize they're fighting for all the children working in unfair and unsafe conditions across the nation.
