Extra! Extra! Newsies The Musical tickets now on sale
Newsies, Disney’s acclaimed Tony award winning Broadway musical is now playing in London at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre.
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).
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 is booking until 16 April 2023 at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, London.
What's the story of Disney's Newsies?
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.
