From Music Theatre International:

Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

Cancellation Policy

Performances will only be cancelled in extremely bad weather or for other unforeseen emergencies. Please check this website for cancellation announcements as well as information on the dates and times of make-up performances.

In the event of a cancellation, ticket holders may use their tickets at the designated make-up performance for that show. If patrons are unable to attend the make-up performance, we will make our best effort to accommodate them with available seating at another performance.

As a small non-profit community theater, we hope to avoid situations where we must issue refunds for performances cancelled due to inclement weather or other emergencies. If you have tickets to a cancelled performance and are not able to use them at one of our designated make-up performances, we invite you to consider the expense a donation to Amherst Community Theater. However, you may also request a full or partial refund by contacting our producer at:

A performance cancelled the first weekend will run the following Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm. A performance cancelled the second weekend will run on Sunday evening at 7:30 pm or Monday evening at 7:30 pm.
