Broadway Across America Presents Newsies
November 6, 2014
Broadway Balances America Series
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.
