Disney’s NEWSIES the Musical

Jun 18 - Jul 19

It’s no wonder this musical took home the Tony Award for Best Music and Best Choreography as it is filled with brilliant songs and newsboys dancing up a storm. Disney’s Newsies is based on the true story of the famed News Boys strike of 1899, it is both extraordinary and endearing and will most definitely have you singing along and cheering for these charming underdogs.
