JR. Script Adaptation by David Simpatico
Based on the Disney film written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White.
The musical follows newsboy Jack Kelly as he rallies a band of fellow "newsies" against the powerful New York newspaper publishers when they raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense. Together, they learn they are stronger united and create a movement that will change history. Including the now classic songs "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," and "Santa Fe," Newsies JR. is an energetic show full of spirit and heart.
