About the Show
March 2 – Sept. 29, 2018
Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics Jack Feldman, Book Harvey Fierstein, Choreography Tamara Kangas Erickson, Director Michael Brindisi, Musical Direction Andrew Bourgoin.
Inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City, Jack Kelly hawks the headlines every day with countless other newsboys trying to save enough to make his dreams a reality. Publisher Joseph Pulitzer realizes he can maximize profits by raising the price of the “papes” and does so without a word to the “Newsies,” who protest and declare a strike against all the publishing giants using their courage, determination and friendship to take a stand. A Minnesota Regional Premiere, the musical was nominated for 8 Tony Awards.
