DISNEY’S NEWSIES, a bona-fide Broadway hit, was inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899.  High-energy with non-stop thrills, the musical addresses themes of social injustice and exploitative labor practices, and features a David-versus-Goliath struggle as the young newsboys learn to harness their power. 

Set in New York City, the show is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies.  He dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. 

The second and final extension to DHT’s summer show, Disney’s Newsies, has been added effective immediately. Disney’s Newsies now runs July 13 – August 12. Shows are Thursdays - Sundays (except for opening and closing week). Evening shows start at 7:30PM for Thursday - Saturdays. Sunday shows are at 4:00PM and Saturday matinees are at 3:00PM.
