Based on a true story, Newsies tells the story of the New York newspaper seller strike at the turn of the 20th century. When newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer hikes up the prices for his papers charged to the newsies, Jack Kelly rallies his fellow newsies in an attempt to protest the change, falling in love with young reporter Katherine along the way. These young newsies from across the city come together and rise up against the exploitation of wealthy publishing tycoons and fight for justice using the only power they have – solidarity.

Running at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre until 30 July 2023, seize the day and book your tickets today!
