Extra! Extra! Read all about it!
It’s time to carry the banner on the Parkview stage with Disney’s Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
Newsies runs Thursday, April 15 – Friday, April 16 and Monday, April 19 – Saturday, April 24 in the High School Gym. All performances start at 6:30 pm. Doors open at 6:00 pm.
Every effort will be made to accommodate your ticket requests. All seats will be chosen by the box office manager, and we cannot change those seats without notice. No changes will be made at the time of the performance. TICKETS/SEATING will be assigned by FAMILY GROUPS to meet Phase 3 distancing requirements.
Tickets orders must be submitted by noon on the day of each performance.
The box office opens at 5:30 pm before each performance, where a limited number of bleacher seats MAY be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted at the box office.
Masks are required and temperatures will be taken at the entrance to the theater. Hand sanitizer will also be available.
Two performances will be live streamed through the Parkview Digital Network for those who cannot attend in person or those who wish to watch from the comfort of their home. The cost is $20 per stream with all proceeds supporting Parkview Fine Arts.
