The Tony Award-winning Broadway phenomenon inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike in New York City.

In 1899, New York City got its news from an army of ragged orphans and runaways called newsies. One of them, Jack Kelly (Xander van den Berg), dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. When newspaper owners raise distribution prices at the newsies' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and leads a group of young newsies to strike for all overworked and underpaid children. This is a delightful show that represents historical events using a combination of upbeat tunes and high-kicking, musical numbers.

Newsies is directed by Rachelle Amparo with choreography by Katherine Jones, vocal direction by Layton Elika Santos and a live orchestra directed by Alan Salvador. Other featured cast members include  Kimie Fujioka as Katherine Plumber, Royce Sapalasan as Crutchie and Jonah Lorica as Davey, with a supporting ensemble of remarkable actors and dancers.
