Newsies

Brampton Musical Theatre presents NEWSIES, the Tony award-winning musical you won't want to miss! Based on the true story of the Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City, Newsies centers around homeless New York City newsboy Jack "Cowboy" Kelly, who befriends two newcomers to his trade, brothers David and Les Jacobs. When publisher Joseph Pulitzer sets new rules that make it harder for the young newspaper salesmen to make a buck, the boys go on strike. Bryan Denton, a journalist who's sympathetic to their plight, gives them some tips in public relations, as the newsboys' battle grips the city.
