LHS Music Department Presents: Newsies, a musical based on the newsboy strike of 1899. The cast of 45 and Orchestra of 21 put on a high energy, dance heavy musical portraying the struggles of children 5-17 years old who had to stand up for their rights. This show will happen over TWO weekends and is sure to be the highlight of your year!
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!
