Huron Country Playhouse

Stop the presses! Disney’s Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical phenomenon is ready to give audiences something to believe in.

They sold the newspapers … until they made the headlines. Based on the beloved 1992 Disney movie inspired by a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, the charismatic leader of a band of teenaged newsboys in New York City at the turn-of-the century. When Joseph Pulitzer and the titans of publishing raise distribution prices, Jack rallies the “newsies” from across the city to rise up and strike against the unfair conditions. With the help of smart and savvy reporter Katherine Plumber, all of New York City soon recognizes the power of young people.

Packed with spectacular dancing and a sensational score by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid) including the hit songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is an uplifting Broadway blockbuster with a timeless message that inspires everyone to fight for what's right and seize the day.
