Disney's Newsies

Music Theatre of Wenatchee’s 2019 Apple Blossom Musical in partnership with Numerica PAC & Wenatchee World

May 1, 2, 4 & 8-11 at 7:30pm. May 5 at 4:00pm. May 11 at 2:00pm.

Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of HorrorsSister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

Newsies is based on the 1992 motion picture. Score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman. Book by Harvey Fierstein. Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
