Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Disney’s smash hit musical Newsies is 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. Newsies is inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899,’ when newsboys went on a two-week-long action against the titans of newspaper publishing.  Since the film’s 1992 theatrical release, Newsies has grown into a cult phenomenon. The Balancing Act’s Amber Milt goes behind the scenes with the choreographer and cast members of Disney’s Newsies to learn what it takes to be a newsie for the stage.  Also, learn how the cast is encouraging young folks to “Get Up and Go” … all part of their campaign to promote fun ways for kids to lead healthier lifestyles through dance, inspired by the show’s Tony Award®-winning choreography and music.
