‘The Newsies’ play at Little Falls High School

March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Little Falls High School Drama Club will present ‘The Newsies’ on March 1st and 2nd at 7 p.m. Tickets will be on sale electronically, where buyers will select and purchase actual row and seat numbers from a seating chart. They are expected to be available two to three weeks before the show dates.

The play is based on a true story that took place in the late 1800s in NYC when newspaper owners took advantage of poor orphans to sell their papers. These children need to buy the paper and sell it for a dime. One of these owners decides to increase the price of the paper for purchase by the kids. But the price to the customer is still the same.

So Jack Kelly (head of the Manhattan Newsies) and other newsies get together and convince the newsies from all the NYC burrows to go on a strike.

Davey and Les are brothers whose parents are struggling, so they decide to join the newsies.

Katherine Plumber is a reporter and also the daughter of the main newspaper owner, but she is against her father’s decision and joins the strike with the kids.
