Extra! Extra! - Orpheus presents

Disney’s Newsies, the Broadway Musical

OTTAWA – From November 18 to 27, 2022, join Orpheus Musical Theatre as they present Disney’s Newsies, the smash hit Broadway Musical at Meridian Theatres @ Centrepointe.

It’s 1899 New York City, and Jack Kelly, a charismatic young “newsie,” has big dreams away from the big city. But when the giants of publishing raise distribution prices at the expense of the young newspaper sellers, Jack rallies youth from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!

Based on the 1992 film, Disney's Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a cast of over 30 local performers. Packed with classic songs and exuberant dance numbers highlighting some of the Ottawa’s best homegrown talent, this high-energy, family-friendly musical inspires us all to seize the day! 

The Director of Disney's Newsies, Rebecca Russell, is excited for audiences to see the show. "Our cast for Disney’s Newsies is incredibly talented," she says. "This Broadway smash hit is known for its high-energy dancing, and our cast has certainly leaped up to that challenge! And the story of Newsies is as relevant today as it was in 1899. I think audiences are just going to fall in love with this entertaining show. Get your tickets for Orpheus Musical Theatre's production of Newsies now: this is one show you don't want to miss!"

Orpheus Musical Theatre has been bringing live musical performances to Ottawa audiences since 1906. A registered charity, Orpheus is proud to produce professional-quality musical theatre while fostering the development of local amateur talent.
