Summer Theatre Production:  Newsies Jr. 

Lombard Park District is proud to announce its premiere recreational youth theatre program. Actors ages 7-16 will work together to create quality, age-appropriate productions suitable for family viewing.

About the Play: When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys’ expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn they are stronger and united and create a movement to fight for what’s right. Disney’s Newsies Jr. is a 60-minute version of the 2012 Broadway musical. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn of the century New York City. Newsies Jr. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.
