Seize the Day! National Tour of Disney's Newsies Opens in Cincinnati

Curtain Up 03/01/16

"The King of New York" is carrying the banner all the way to Ohio! The national tour of Disney's Newsies opens in Cincinnati on March 1. The hit Broadway musical will play Procter & Gamble Hall - Aronoff Center for the Arts through March 13.

Featuring a Tony-winning score with music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, with a book by four-time Tony winner Harvey Fierstein, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged "newsies," who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.

The musical is directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work. The score for Newsies includes such fan-favorite songs as "Santa Fe," "Carrying the Banner," "Seize the Day," "King of New York" and "Once and for All."

The cast of Newsies features Joey Barreiro as Jack Kelly, Steve Blanchard as Joseph Pulitzer, Morgan Keene as Katherine, Aisha de Haas as Medda Larkin, Stephen Michael Langton as Davey and Zachary Sayle as Crutchie.
