Stop the Presses! Disney’s Newsies on Stage for the First Time at DCT

It’s time to carry the banner at Delaware Children’s Theatre with Disney’s Newsies! 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, this powerful Disney musical features a Tony Award-winning score 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.


First time on DCT’s stage, Newsies features strong adult and kid performers who impress with their stellar talents. With dynamic music and wonderful dancing, this show teaches the importance of standing up for your beliefs as well as seizing the day.

Running January 11-26 with Saturday and Sunday Matinees at 2 pm, with Friday night shows on January 17 and 24 at 7 pm. Tickets are available through the DCT website:
