It's time to carry the banner on your stage with Disney's "NEWSIES THE MUSICAL"!
Set in turn-of-the century New York City, "NEWSIES THE MUSICAL" is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "NEWSIES."
When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies "NEWSIES" from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!

It is the Stadium Theatre’s mission to offer the widest variety of high caliber, live entertainment to guests at family-affordable prices.
