Live Events | 08/5/2023 | 2:00PM & 7:30PM
Wearing a mask while inside the Theater is optional.
Seize the Day with Disney’s rousing musical that has thrilled and inspired young people for generations.
DMR Adventures proudly presents Disney’s Newsies JR., the hour-long adaption of the smash Broadway musical based on the 1992 film inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City. You will NOT want to miss our talented cast of over 80 students.
Inspired by the true story of the 1899 New York City Newsboys Strike, Newsies JR. is a joyful and entertaining musical capturing the strength that young people have when they join together and stand up against injustice. Join Jack Kelly and his ragtag team of “newsies” as they make a meager living selling newspapers on the city streets.
When the prices of “papes” are hiked and the newsies are hung out to dry, there is nothing left to do but “open the gates and seize the day!” Led by charismatic Jack and independent, young newspaper reporter Katherine Plummer, the newsies form a union and organize a strike against the greedy publisher of the New York World – Joseph Pulitzer. Can a group of idealistic newsies win against a foe as the well-financed and influential Pulitzer?
If you’d like to see over 150 performers from DMR Adventures perform before August, don’t miss Broadway at the Paramount on May 6th at 2:00PM and 7:30 PM.
