NEWSIES at Kweskin Theatre
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. NEWSIES is inspired by the real-life Newsboy’s Strike of 1899, when newsboys Kid Blink and
David Simons led a band of orphan and runaway children on a two-week-long action against newspaper publishers Pulitzer and Hearst. This fabulous musical has delighted young and old across the country and we're thrilled to be one of the first theatres licensed to perform it!
