Disney’s NEWSIES

A true tale of high-flying heart.

They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines!

In 1899, New York City had its papers delivered by an army of ragged orphans and runaways called ‘newsies’. When newspaper owners raise distribution prices at the newsies’ expense, this band of misfits unites to strike against the unfair conditions.

A soaring spectacle of powerful song and high-kicking dance, Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message for the whole family. This Disney film turned Tony-winning Broadway hit inspires everyone to fight for what’s right and seize the day.
