You could win four tickets to the see Newsies on September 8th at Orlando Repertory Theater! Newsies runs September 5 through October 22 at the Orlando Rep. They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines. Based on the Disney film, the story of Jack Kelly and his gang is based on the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City, where the powerless found the courage to challenge the powerful. When publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises the prices of the paper at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies the group to fight back. With help from spunky upstart reporter Katherine Plumber, the whole world finds out what happens when “the little guys” stand up and seize the day!
