December 6-31: Newsies – Carolinas’ Premiere, Two-Time Tony-Award Winner … a High-Energy Hit! Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams of a better life far from 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 and take a stand for what’s right. The story is inspired by the real-life Newsboys strike of 1899 in New York City, with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and book by Harvey Fierstein. The rousing songs, high-energy dance numbers, and an uplifting story make for an evening of inspirational storytelling in the best possible sense.
