Immerse yourself in the gritty, spirited world of ‘Newsies’ at Ovation Theatre.

This dynamic musical, set in the bustling streets of New York at the turn of the century, tells the story of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teen ‘newsies.’ When powerful publishing titans hike distribution prices, Jack and his ragtag group of friends find themselves thrust into a David-versus-Goliath battle for justice.

Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899 and adapted from the 1992 motion picture, ‘Newsies’ celebrates the power of unity and the courage of the underdog with its Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, and a compelling book by Harvey Fierstein. Audiences of all ages will be moved by the rousing anthems ‘Carrying the Banner,’ ‘Seize the Day,’ and ‘Santa Fe’—each a beacon of hope and solidarity. This is a tale not just of fighting for rights, but of growing up and the bonds formed along the way.

Don’t miss this electrifying story of determination and camaraderie, a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
