Newsies JR.

When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.

Our talented young actors, age 7-17, are looking forward to the exciting prospect of sharing this educationally rich period piece with your students at our school performances. Please join us at Highline College on May 4 at 10:00am or 11:45am. (75 minutes, recommended for ages 5+) Tickets are $7.50. A 50% deposit secures your reservation. Our new venue only has 99 seats, so please please reserve early!

If you would like to “Seize the Day!” and “Carry the Banner” to your students and chaperones, simply email us at info@hi-liners.org with an estimate of the number of tickets your group will require.
