Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899 and tells the story of Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies” who dreams of a life as an artist away from the big city.
After publishing titan Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack and his fellow newsies take action. With help from the beautiful reporter Katherine Plumber, all of New York City soon recognizes the power of the underdog as Jack and his team rallies newsies from across the city to fight for what’s right.
