Reston Community Players Presents Disney’s ‘Newsies’

Friday, July 15 & Saturday, July 16

Sunday, July 17

Capital One Hall
7750 Capital One Tower Road
Tysons, VA 22102

Disney’s Newsies is a production of Reston Community Players’ Apprentice Program, a unique program that combines RCP’s high-quality theatrical productions with a focus on student education as we feature local youth aged 13-18 both onstage and behind the scenes.

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by the true story of the Newsboy Strike of 1899, Disney’s Newsies tells the story of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy who dreams of a better life. After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies a ragged band of newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right. Packed with infectious energy and non-stop thrills, this Broadway smash hit is a testament to the power of youth and the importance of standing up and speaking out – a perfect show for the whole family!
