“Newsies”
Fireside Dinner Theatre Day Trip to Fort Atkinson, WI

Adapted from the Disney film set in New York at the turn of the century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. High-energy with non-stop thrills, the stage version includes eight brand-new songs by the original team of Alan Menken and Jack Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film such as “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York,” and “Santa Fe.”  Trip includes round trip transportation via coach bus (with bathroom), gourmet lunch, and performance.  Bus leaves UW-MWC around 7:00 AM and returns around 7:30 PM.  There will be a fast-food stop on the way home.
