by Linda Hubbard on March 16, 2023

Based on the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899, the Disney musical Newsies tells the story of a ragtag team of newsboys who make a meager living selling newspapers on the streets of New York City. When the newspaper price is increased, they form a union and organize a strike against the greedy publisher of the New York World.

Enjoy Newsies on March 17-19 and 24-26. Shows at 7:30 on Fridays and Saturdays, 5:00 on Sundays at the Menlo-Atherton Performing Arts Center, 555 Middlefield Road, Atherton.

Tickets are $10 for students/seniors and $15 for adults, and are available at the door or at online.
