Too hot outside? Join us for this family classic while you kick back and enjoy some popcorn. Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Well, maybe not read, but come watch as the characters in Newsies! sing and dance their way through the famous New York City newsboy strike of 1899. Determined to make their dreams come true the courageous group of newsboys become unlikely heroes when they team up to fight an unscrupulous newspaper publisher. Make sure to visit our newsies exhibit in the DiMenna Children's History Museum to learn more about what life would have really been like for these young lads and lasses.
Venue Description: A trip to New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the New-York Historical Society with four centuries of history and art – plus the only Children’s History Museum in the area. It hits the spot for anyone craving an offbeat (and often surprising) bite of the city’s culture easily digested in an hour or two. Quirky, smart, immersive and across the street from beautiful Central Park, it offers a rich taste of the city.
