Newsies

October 19 – November 4, 2018
Jennie T. Anderson Theatre

We are excit­ed to bring you Auro­ra Theatre’s pro­duc­tion of Disney’s Newsies. Newsies, based on the 1992 motion pic­ture, fea­tures a score by eight-time Acad­e­my Award® win­ner Alan Menken (Beau­ty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sis­ter Act) and Jack Feld­man and a book by four-time Tony Award win­ner Har­vey Fier­stein (La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Tril­o­gy). Time­ly and fresh, the fic­tion­al­ized adap­ta­tion of the newsboy’s strike address­es age-old themes of social injus­tice, exploita­tive labor prac­tices and David-ver­sus-Goliath strug­gles as the youth learn to har­ness their pow­er against a cor­rupt estab­lish­ment. High-ener­gy with non-stop thrills, the stage ver­sion intro­duces eight brand-new songs by the orig­i­nal team of Menken and Feld­man while keep­ing many of the beloved songs from the film, includ­ing “Car­ry­ing the Ban­ner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York” and “San­ta Fe.” Disney’s Newsies is pre­sent­ed through spe­cial arrange­ment with Music The­atre Inter­na­tion­al (MTI).
