Disney’s Newsies

SFArtsED Players
Ticket sales ended for this event.

They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines. The SFArtsED Players launch their 22nd season with Disney’s Newsies, the Tony Award-winning musical based on the beloved 1992 movie. Audiences and critics alike are calling it “a musical worth singing about!” (The New York Times). Filled with one heart-pounding number after another, it’s a high-energy explosion of song and dance. Now is the time to seize the day with Newsies, the captivating story, based on true events, of a band of child laborers who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to the most powerful men in New York. It’s a rousing tale about fighting for what’s right and staying true to who you are.
