“Newsies” at Chanhassen Dinner Theatre’s
March 2, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - September 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm
Disney's “Newsies,” the exciting musical that took Broadway by storm, is coming to Chanhassen Dinner Theatres! Inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City, “Newsies” tell the story of Jack Kelly who goes from being a simple newsboy to a movement maker.
Kelly hawks the headlines day-in and day-out with countless other newsboys trying to save enough to make his dreams a reality. New York World publisher, Joseph Pulitzer, realizes he can maximize profits by raising the price of the “papes” and does so without a word to the “Newsies.” Upon seeing Pulitzer’s greed, the newsboys protest and declare a strike against all the publishing giants. Realizing it will take more than his friends to make a difference, Jack rallies all the “Newsies” in New York City. Through courage, determination, and friendship the “Newsies” are ready to seize the day and take a stand.
Guests have the option of dining before the show; meals are served two hours before show time.
