Disney's Newsies JR.
The Tony Award-winning Disney musical gets the Broadway Junior treatment!

Disney’s Newsies JR. is a 60-minute musical based on the 1992 motion picture and 2012 Broadway musical. Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.

Newsboy Jack Kelly rallies a band of fellow "newsies" against the powerful New York newspaper publishers when they raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense. Together, they learn they are stronger united and create a movement that will change history.

Including the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies JR. is an energetic show full of spirit and heart.

Newsies Jr. update

Hello again,

I just received the email this morning listing the whole slew of new shows being released, and I'm hugely disappointed that Newsies Jr. is not among them.  Can you please tell us the reasoning behind the delay, especially as we were told it was originally ready to go last fall?  I'm not asking for a release date, since you probably still can't say, but some insight as to why it is still restricted would be greatly appreciated and very helpful information as we plan our season. Thank you.

Update on Newsies Jr.

Hello, we're almost to June 2021, and we're hoping for an update on the release for Newsies Jr. At one point I remember the date being September 2020. Obviously Covid probably messed with the timeline, but if it was close to being released then, hopefully it shouldn't be too much longer now? My school has been wanting to do it for a number of years now, and we will begin our next production the end of August. Could you please let us know if the delay is due to Covid or some other issue? Thank you in advance for your time.

Newsies, Jr. availability

I see from the answers to the previous questions that Newsies, Jr. has been "postponed until further notice."

Have there been any updates to a potential release date? 

Thank you!

Newsies, Jr.

Hi, 

We are hoping to book "Newsies, Jr." for an August 2021 summer camp production.  Do you know when it will be available to book?  

I realize the world is still upside down, but we're hoping by August we can have in-person camp again and Newsies is top on our list!

 

Thank you for all you do!

-Jill

Release Date

Hello! I know the last post asking this question was back in June, but I just wanted to check in and see if "Winter 2021" possibly meant January or February. Just trying to time out our auditions, and see if I could potentially hold out till it's released. Thank you in advance!

Release date

Hello! I know you said that this will be released in early Winter 2021. Does that mean like January? If so can we book the show before hand so we can start rehearsals as soon as it is realeased? I work at an all boys school & my boys at my school really wanted to do this show this year when we thought it was being realeased in August 2020. They will be 8th graders and since it is their last year at my school and the restrictions that will most likely be in place, this would be the perfect show because there aren't many girl roles. Please try to realease it early! It will bring joy to so many children after these uncertain times. Yesterday, at our drive-by goodbyes, the 8th grade boys said that they are most looking forward to doing this play at school next year. Thank you!
