Disney’s Newsies JR. is a 60-minute version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, 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 expense of their delivery workers, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies young newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions, gaining the attention of ambitious young reporter, Katherine Plumber, who seeks to help their cause. Together, they learn that their voices are stronger together as they create a movement to fight for what’s right–once and for all.
