EXTRA! EXTRA! Meet the cast of NEWSIES!

Hot off the press! Quincy Community Theatre Announces the cast of NEWSIES!  

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 the titan of publishing raises 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 is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family.
