They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines. TUTS is excited to bring Houston audience an all new production of Newsies, the smash-hit, crowd-pleasing musical from Disney.

A two-time Tony Award-winning show, Newsies has audiences and critics alike calling it “a musical worth singing about!” (The New York Times). Filled with one heart-pounding number after another, it’s a high-energy explosion of song and dance you won’t want to miss. Based on true events, Newsies tells the captivating story of a band of underdogs who become unlikely heroes when they stand up to the most powerful men in New York. It’s a rousing tale about fighting for what’s right… and staying true to who you are.

Newsies was brought to the stage by an award-winning creative team. It features a score by Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Jack Feldman, with a book by Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles).

Now available as part of a subscription to our six-show 2019/20 season. Tickets on sale to the general public on Monday, July 15.

NEWSIES is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
