ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)– Disney’s ‘Newsies’ is playing at The Fabulous Fox Theatre through the end of the month!

Set in New York City 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.

Cast members Alex Prakken and Michael Gorman visit KPLR 11 to discuss the upcoming production with Dan Gray.
