Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR, tells the story of a time when powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys’ expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what’s right.
