Newsies the Musical

UPDATE (June 18, 2020): Newsies livestream information coming soon!

Chattanooga Christian School's Theatre Department is proud to present Disney's Newsies as its annual Spring Musical. Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right.

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Newsies is directed and choreographed by Mary Catherine Schimpf, who is assisted by Ellie Austin, with music direction by Kara Riley, technical direction by Heath Austin, and scenic design by David Macallister. Newsies contains some mild language.
