Our contest to win two tickets to win opening night of Disney’s Newsies at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver on July 5 is now closed. Congratulations to our winner, Julie McIsaac.
Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Disney’s Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenage ‘newsies,’ who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.
Disney’s Newsies is inspired by the real-life ‘Newsboy Strike of 1899,’ when newsboy Kid Blink led a band of orphan and runaway newsies on a two-week-long action against Pulitzer, Hearst and other powerful newspaper publishers.
Disney’s Newsies plays the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver from July 5-10. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
