StageAntics in association with Kennedy School of Music presents Disney’s Newsies JR.
Disney’s Newsies JR is a 60-minute version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.
When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys’ expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what’s right.
This version has been specially designed for performers who are the same age as the young people who first went on strike.
It is an inspirational musical and a family show for all ages
