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.
