It's Opening Week for Newsies - Purchase Tickets Now!

Our Walnut High School Theater Department has been working hard to prepare for their Spring Musical, "Newsies" as opening night is slated for March 17!

Based on a true story, “Newsies” is the rousing tale of a ragged band of teenage newspaper sellers who dream of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. After newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer hikes up the prices for his papers charged to the newsies, Jack Kelly rallies his fellow newsboys to protest the change, falling in love with young reporter Katherine along the way. These young newsies from across the city come together and rise up against the exploitation of wealthy publishing tycoons and fight for justice using the only power they have – solidarity.

This entertaining, high-energy musical is not to be missed. Join Jack, Crutchie, Race, Albert, and the dozens of Newsies cast members from the WHS School of the Arts as they seize the day to take on the powerful giants of New York. 

Shows will be held on March 17, 18, 24, & 25 with a special sensory-sensitive matinee on March 25! Click on the link below to pick your seat and purchase a ticket.
