Based on a true story, NEWSIES is set in New York City at the turn of the 20th century. It’s the
rousing tale of a ragged band of teenage newspaper sellers, who dream of a better life far from
the hardship of the streets. After newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer hikes up the prices for his
papers charged to the newsies, Jack Kelly rallies his fellow newsies in an attempt to protest the
change, falling in love with young reporter Katherine along the way. These young newsies from
across the city come together and rise up against the exploitation of wealthy publishing tycoons
and fight for justice using the only power they have – solidarity.
The original production of NEWSIES opened on Broadway in 2012 and was slated to play only
100 performances but went on to play over 1,000 performances before touring and winning two
Tony Awards®, including Best Original Score. The original production was filmed live on stage
and released in cinemas in 2017.
Now for the very first time, audiences in the UK have a chance to enjoy the thrill of one of the
biggest Broadway hits of recent years. In an innovative and brand new production at
Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, theatregoers will be thrust right inside the action as the
newsies dance, sing, jump and fly around the streets of a booming 19 th century New York City.
