Production photos for Disney’s Newsies have been released ahead of its opening at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre in London tonight (8 December).
The award-winning Broadway musical began previews on 29 November 2022 and is booking to 16 April 2023.
The cast stars Michael Ahomka-Lindsay as Jack Kelly, Moya Angela as Medda Larkin, Bronte Barbe as Katherine Plumber, Cameron Blakely as Joseph Pulitzer and many more.
With music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and a book by Harvey Fierstein, this Broadway favourite opened in 2012, winning Tony awards for Best Original Score and Best Choreography and landing a filmed version on Disney Plus.
Newsies is an uplifting tale of a defining moment in American history – the Newsboys strike of 1899 against Joseph Pulitzer and other publishers who tried to take more than their fair share of the young workers’ earnings, and Manhattan newsboy Jack Kelly, who formed his own union.
