The John Stark Regional High School Stage Company is proud to present Disney’s Newsies, today and Saturday at 7 p.m. nightly and a matinee Sunday at 2 p.m. at John Stark Regional High School in Weare. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $7 for adults. Tickets may be purchased at the door or you may reserve seats by leaving a message with Geri Lawton at JSRHS 529-1601.

Newsies is an uplifting musical based on the newsboy strike of 1899. Jack Kelly (played by John Stark junior Sean Boisvert) and the newsies of New York work to take down the powerful owner of the newspaper, Joseph Pulitzer (played by junior Eli Bryant) and his unfair business practices. The show’s music was written by Alan Menken, with lyrics by Jack Feldman. The book (based on the screenplay written by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White) was written by Harvey Fierstein.
