New York City, 1899. Jack Kelly and his ragtag team of “newsies” make a meager living selling newspapers on the city streets, but when the prices of “papes” are hiked and the newsies are hung out to dry, there is nothing left to do but “open the gates and seize the day!” Led by charismatic Jack and independent, young newspaper reporter Katherine Plummer, the newsies form a union and organize a strike against the greedy publisher of the New York World. Can a group of idealistic newsies win against a foe as powerful as acclaimed publisher Joseph Pulitzer?
Inspired by the true story of the 1899 Newsboys Strike, Newsies is a joyful and entertaining musical capturing the strength that young people have when they join together and stand up against injustice.
