About This Event

The Springfield Little Theatre Education Department is excited to present DISNEY'S NEWSIES, JR., as part of it's 2023 Summer Institute Series. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, DISNEY'S NEWSIES, JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.

When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.
