Play of the Season: Newsies

 

Based on the Newsboy Strike of 1899, this musical by Disney, is based on Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy who fancies becoming an artist–away from the big city. But, when publishing mogul, Joseph Pulitzer, raises the price of his paper at the boys’ expense, Kelly and his fellow newsies go for revenge. Soon, with a little help from the beautiful female reporter, Katherine Plumber, all of New York City will recognize the power of “the little man.”
