CMT Marquee Productions presents a holiday gift for young and old alike: the West Coast non-union regional premiere of Disney’s Newsies! Based on the 1992 musical film and inspired by a true story, Newsies takes us back to the New York City newsboy strike of 1899. Jack Kelly, the charismatic leader of a ragtag band of paperboys, dreams of a life far from the hardship of the streets. But when ruthless publishing titans raise prices at the boys’ expense, Jack rallies “newsies” from across the city to strike, take a stand and fight. With catchy music and high-energy choreography, this David-and-Goliath struggle will charm and inspire you. Newsies won the Tony Award for Best Original Score, with songs like “Santa Fe”, “Seize the Day” and “King of New York”.
