Following nine Schmidt & Jones nominations for All Shook Up last year, the talented theatre department at Coppell High School will be presenting Disney's Newsies as the fall musical. Tickets are on sale now at chstb.booktix.com (prices will go up at the door)!
Inspired by the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, this high-energy musical soars with rousing dance numbers and non-stop thrills. In New York City at the turn of the century, publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst look to take advantage of newsboys to increase profits. Enter charismatic Jack Kelly who unwittingly leads a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” across the city to strike for what’s right. This Tony Award-winning musical, based on the timeless Disney film, is toe-tapping fun for the entire family.
