July 26-Aug. 4
Miami University Hamilton Parrish Auditorium

In 1899, New York City got its news from an army of ragged orphans and runaways. These “newsies” dreamed of a better life away from the hardship of the streets while they fought to survive on pennies a day. But when publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer decides to raise the price of the “papes,” the newsies must band together to take action against their ruthless boss. Can they stand firm and ultimately enact change to protect working kids across the city?
