Seize the Day! Disney’s NEWSIES premieres at Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance
Coming to the Winston-Salem Theatre Alliance stage June 15-24 is Disney’s Newsies The Musical – the Tony Award-winning Broadway phenomenon! The show is based on the historic newsboy strike of 1899 that shook the ivory towers of William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer. It leaps onto the stage with soul stirring music, amazing heart, and stunning choreography.
It tells how a band of underdogs took on the most powerful names in New York in a fight for what’s right. The poor and orphaned teenagers, selling newspapers for a penny a paper, are pushed to the limit when newspaper moguls Hearst and Pulitzer try to take away more of their meager profits. Jack Kelly becomes the leader who rallies the newsies from across the city to take a stand and strike against the most powerful publishers in the country. Their cause becomes even bigger than any of the newsies imagined when they realize they’re fighting for all the children working in unfair and unsafe conditions across the nation.
Newsies The Musical was the winner of the 2012 Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Choreography.
