    Disney’s Newsies, based on the 1992 motion picture, features a score by eight-time Academy Award? winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony Award? winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Torch Song Trilogy). While on Broadway, Newsies received 23 major theatrical nominations – including eight Tony Award? nods – and won Tony?, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Score and Choreography.

     

    Newsies is inspired by the real-life “Newsboy Strike of 1899,” when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers. Timely and fresh, the fictionalized adaptation of Newsies addresses age-old themes of social injustice, exploitative labor practices and David-versus-Goliath struggles as the young learn to harness their power against a corrupt establishment. High-energy with non-stop thrills, the stage version introduces eight brand-new songs by the original team of Menken and Feldman while keeping many of the beloved songs from the film, including “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York” and “Santa Fe.”

     

    They delivered the papers, until they made the headlines... Newsies, the smash-hit, crowd-pleasing musical from Disney is the first show in Woodminster's 2019 Season. 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 don’t want to miss.

     

    Now is the time to seize the day with Newsies, playing July 5-7, 11-14 at Woodminster Amphitheater in Oakland's Joaquin Miller Park. All performances at 8pm.

     

    We will be providing open captioning at the July 6 & 7 performances as well as audio description on July 13. Hearing devices and printed scripts will be available at both the upper and lower entrances for all performance dates. Click here for more info.
