ABOUT THE SHOW
Stop the presses! Based on a true story, Disney’s Newsies is an exhilarating underdog tale with a big heart and a resilient spirit. It’s 1899 New York City, and Jack Kelly, a charismatic young “newsie,” has big dreams away from the big city. But when the giants of publishing raise distribution prices at the expense of the young newspaper sellers, Jack rallies youth from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!
Based on the 1992 film, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Packed with classic songs and exuberant dance numbers, this high-energy, family-friendly musical inspires all of us to seize the day!
Performances: Tuesday through Saturday (7:30 p.m.) and Sunday matinees (2 p.m.) – BUY TICKETS NOW
Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes with one intermission (approx.)
Shows will take place from November 18th – 27th and are sure to sell out! All the details are available on my events calendar, and also on the Meridian Theatres website. I’m excited to be there for opening night and will offer up a review shortly after. Enjoy!
