Newsies is based on the the true events of the 'Newsboy Strike of 1899' in New York. A charming lad called Jack Kelly, rallies fellow newsboys into a group called "Newsies" to strike, after they have been forced by the paper giants into bearing the increased cost of distribution prices of newspapers.
Nominated for quite a few Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Newsies will appeal not only to muscial theatre lovers, but also to members of the whole family. With a fantastic musical score, and the the same production team as Beauty and The Beast and The Lion King, this cinematic experience will be one not to be missed.
