Lohrey Stage - Regional Premiere

Music by Alan Menkin, Lyrics by Jack Feldman. Book by Harvey Fierstein

Energetic and Irresistible. In 1899, New York City got its news from an army of ragged orphans and runaways called newsies. One of them, Jack Kelly, dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. When newspaper owners raise distribution prices at the newsies' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and leads a young army toward responsibility in a combination of jaunty tunes and high-kicking, musical numbers.
