Set in turn-of-the century New York City, “Newsies” tells the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. Featuring many now classic songs including “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe.”
