About Disney's Newsies.

Matilda The Musical Logo

Based on a true story, NEWSIES is set in New York City at the turn of the 19th century. It’s the rousing tale of a ragged band of teenage newspaper sellers, who dream of a better life far from the hardship of the streets.

The original production of NEWSIES opened on Broadway in 2012 and was slated to play only 100 performances but went on to play over 1,000 performances before touring and winning two Tony Awards®.

Now for the first time, audiences in the UK have the chance to enjoy the thrill of one of the biggest Broadway hits of recent years. In an innovative and immersive production at Troubador Wembley Park Theatre, theatregoers will be thrust right inside the action as the newsies dance, sing, jump and fly around the streets of a booming 19th century New York City.
