The ACT Presents: Newsies!
September 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm CDT
Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack gathers the newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right! Inspired by the true story of the 1899 Newsboy strike, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. It features fan favorite songs, Carrying the Banner, Seize the Day, and Santa Fe.
