The Next Generation Theatre Company production of Disney’s Newsies tells the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right! Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
Next Generation Theatre Company is excited to bring Disney’s Newsies to St Louis, and we are firm believers that all should be able to escape the troubles of world and head to the theatre. This is why we are thrilled to offer a sensory friendly performance of Newsies! This will be a one time, special performance on September 2, 2018 at 2pm! This performance will have a few adjustments to create a welcoming environment for our entire community, such as the house lights being at half for the entire performance.
