Trafalgar Castle School Presents Disney’s Newsies JR.
Join us for our production of “Newsies Jr.”
Newsies Jr. is a lively musical set at the end of the 19th century, a time of great change around the world. Selling newspapers was a lucrative enterprise for young children who, often, were orphans or needed to help support their families. The newsies of New York were popularly admired as ”little merchants”, for unlike children working in factories, the newsies were free to set their own hours and determine how many papers they would sell each day. The newspapers, however, controlled the wholesale price and the kids commonly worked up to 14 hours a day to make enough money. Newsies Jr. is based on the real-life newsies strike of 1899. Watch what happens when the New York newsies sing and dance their way against two powerful newspaper publishers!
