Wicked Interesting:

NEWSIES opens up at Academy Players in Providence - September 13th!

Inspired by a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged newsies, who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.

Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience!
