Disney’s Newsies Tickets London

Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Newsies, Disney’s acclaimed Tony award winning Broadway musical, premieres this November 2022 at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in London.

Winner of the 2012 Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Choreography, Disney’s Newsies has music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Tickets for Disney’s Newsies are on sale soon.

Based on the 1992 Disney film, itself inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, Disney’s Newsies is a high-energy song and dance musical tackling age-old themes of social injustice, exploitative labor practices, and David-versus-Goliath struggles as the young learn to harness their power against a corrupt establishment.

This brand new production will be staged as a fully immersive, ‘in the round’ production at the Troubadour.

Disney’s Newsies will open in London on 29 November 2022.

Tickets will go on sale to the public at 10am on Thursday 16 June

What is Newsies about?

Set in New York City at the turn of the 19th century, the story is based on real events: the tale of a ragged band of teenage newspaper sellers, who dream of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. After newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer hikes up the prices for his papers charged to the newsies, Jack Kelly rallies his fellow newsboys in an attempt to protest the change, falling in love with young reporter Katherine along the way. These young newsies from across the city come together and rise up against the exploitation of wealthy publishing tycoons and fight for justice using the only power they have – solidarity.

Who is in the London cast of Newsies?

The London cast for Newsies is to be announced soon.

The award-winning Broadway musical boasts music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and a book by Harvey Fierstein, and is based on the much-loved Disney live-action film.

Set in New York City at the turn of the 19th century, the story is based on real events: the tale of a ragged band of teenage newspaper sellers, who dream of a better life far from the hardship of the streets.

Alan Menken told the press today that: “I am OVER THE MOON about Newsies opening in London!! I’ve been wishing and waiting for this for soooo long. I truly cannot wait!”

Matt Cole, Director & Choreographer, said: “As a huge fan of the original Disney film and the Broadway production, I am extremely honoured and thrilled to be reimagining this brand new version for London and the UK. With an incredible score by the legendary Alan Menken and book by Harvey Fierstein we will bring this all-singing, all-dancing show to Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre. This site-specific version of the show provides an exciting opportunity to present the piece in a non-traditional format. Set in the round, the audience will be thrust into turn-of-the-century New York, where the action and choreography will weave its way in and out of the audience. I cannot wait to work with this talented creative team on delivering this wonderful and exciting show to the UK.”
