More About Aurora Theatre kicks off 2018-19 season with Disney’s NEWSIES

Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, Disney’s NEWSIES is set to kick off Aurora Theatre’s 23rd season with rousing dance numbers and non-stop fun for the whole family! This high-energy musical is set to soar onto the mainstage July 19 –September 2, where audiences will follow charismatic Jack Kelly and his ragged band of teenaged “newsies” as they strike against an unfair system in New York City at the turn of the century.

"We're thrilled to bring this fan favorite to audiences in Lawrenceville,” said Justin Anderson, Director. “For those like myself who grew up watching the song-filled cult-classic film in the 90s, and even those who are not familiar with the story, will find this version resonates with sheer joy and triumph for the underdog. It’s a feel-good, energetic production that is the perfect way to kick off our season!”

With music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and book by Harvey Fierstein, NEWSIES highlights publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst as they try to take advantage of newsboys to increase profits. However, everything changes when Jack Kelly and his group of “newsies” come on the scene. This Tony Award-winning musical, based on the timeless Disney film, is toe-tapping fun for the entire family!

Aurora Theatre’s production of NEWSIES stars Greg Kamp as Jack Kelly, Adrianna Trachell as Katherine Plumber, Stephan Jones as Joseph Pulitzer, Russell Alexander II as Crutchie, Marcello Audino as Davey and Mahalia Jackson as Medda Larkin, along with a star-studded ensemble. Audiences will recognize the same creative talents behind Aurora Theatre’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Mamma Mia! – direction by Justin Anderson, musical direction by Ann-Carol Pence and choreography by Ricardo Aponte.

NEWSIES will play Aurora Theatre July 19-September 2, with a discount matinee on Tuesdays, July 31 and August 7 at 10 a.m. with tickets starting at $20.
