FREE virtual theatre trip: an exclusive screening of NEWSIES: The Broadway Musical.
Disney is pleased to invite you to a FREE virtual theatre trip – tune in with your class and watch an exclusive screening of the Tony® award-winning musical NEWSIES.
Set in New York City at the turn of the century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.
To support your class’s virtual trip, you will have access to a Teachers’ Toolkit which includes a Study Guide consisting of six lesson plans, a video dance workshop and a video Q&A with members of the Disney team who brought NEWSIES to the stage.
Newsies will be available to stream from 14 June-23 July 2021. The virtual screening and materials will be available via a unique passcode which will be sent to you in advance.
Register by 10 June to access this FREE opportunity for your students.
