About the show

Disney’s Newsies Jr. is a timeless and powerful story filled with hope and ambition. When a top-notch newspaper publisher raises prices for newsboys’ delivery services, Jack Kelly jumps into action to rally newsies around the city to strike against them. The newsies soon learn they are stronger together as they create a movement to fight for what they deserve.
