"They delivered the papers - until they made the headlines!" 📰 Filled with Tony award-winning music and choreography, NEWSIES, is the story of the 1899 Newsboy Strike and the triumph of "the little guy" versus "the big corporation" ...intertwined with a tale of steadfast friendships and young love. Join Jack Kelly and the rest of the Newsies as they are forced to scratch out a hard-scrabble living - hawking newspapers in the Big Apple during an era where orphans and homeless youth are terribly exploited for their labor. When the greed of millionaires threatens to make their existence downright impossible, these brave children take a stand for their rights...and make history! Based on actual events, this is a story that will both move and motivate audiences! Tickets are on sale now and won't last long...visit or The Paramount Box Office to purchase your tickets today!
