It's Show Week: Montello Junior High to perform "Newsies Jr."

Newsies Jr., Disney’s tale based on a true story about the 1899 Newsboys strike in New York City will take to the stage at Montello Junior High School in the Community Room May 18-21.

Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Harvey Fierstein. It features the now classic songs "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," and "Santa Fe."

Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly (Thomas Olson), 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!
