APEX Theatre presents Disney’s Newsies Jr. at Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College.
Disney’s Newsies Jr. is a shorter version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies Jr. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.
When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys’ expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what’s right. Including the now-classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies Jr. is a timeless story full of spirit and heart.
The production features teaching artists, guest artists, and students from the upper and lower division of Apex Theatre Studio. With a running time of seventy minutes, it is a perfect night out for the whole family. Tickets range from $15-$22. 14 Granada St., St. Augustine. www.apextheatrejax.com/event
