NEWSIES - 7th-12th grade spring musical
This spring, the Southwest MN Schools 7th through 12th will be performing the musical “Newsies JR.” Disney's Newsies JR. is a shorter version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Newsies JR. is inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City,
When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.
Including the now-classic songs "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," “King of New York” and "Santa Fe," Newsies JR. is a timeless story full of spirit and heart.
There will be three performances this year, the evenings of April 4, 5, and 6 at 7:00 pm. We are so excited to share this musical with you and hope to see you there! Tickets will go on sale soon!
