2022 Performance Troupe!

Seize the Day with Disney's rousing musical that has thrilled and inspired young people for generations.

Disney's Newsies JR. is a NEW version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys & girls in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin & Little Mermaid) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.

There are memorable roles for boys and girls in this stellar production.

When influential newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' & girls' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.

Including the now-classic songs "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," and "Santa Fe," Newsies JR. is a timeless story full of spirit and heart.
