Arts Center HHI



Newsies is the story of a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged 'newsies,' who dreams of a better life far from the streets and rallies newsies from across the city to strike and take a stand for what's right. The rousing songs and high-energy dance numbers make for an evening of inspirational storytelling in the best possible sense.
