We are so excited to bring Disney’s Newsies, the Broadway Musical, to the McClure Theatre at the Springer Opera House! With its setting in the grungy streets of New York City, we could not imagine a better location than the McClure Theater with its metal catwalks, stadium seating, and its intimacy. The audience will not merely be observing the show as a spectator, but they will be totally immersed in the city, surrounded on all sides by its hustle and bustle, and most importantly, its Newsies!
By far, this is the most complex show Calvary has taken on, but our cast has risen so enthusiastically to the challenge! We know that our audience will be thrilled with the incredible choreography, the showstopping vocals, and the powerful acting! Though this show takes place in 1899, it brings to light so many issues of our current time. We hope that audiences from young to old, will not only be entertained, but that this show will also serve as a call to arms for the oppressed, the exploited, and the fatherless in our world today.” -Lauren Wood, Director
Set in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies 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!
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
