Disney's Newsies Music by Alan Menken | Lyrics by Jack Feldman | Book by Harvey Fierstein Based on the Disney Film written by Bob Tzudiker & Noni White Originally Produced on Broadway by Disney Theatrical Productions
For the very first time, The Coterie and the White Theatre at The J join forces to create Kansas City’s first locally-produced production of the Broadway smash hit.
Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies tells the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.
