The first full-scale professional production at Patchogue Theatre since the pandemic started is a big one.
It’s Disney’s Newsies, presented by The Gateway, and it’s running from Aug. 25 through Sept. 11.
Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies tells the tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.”
When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight.
The show is based on the 1992 Disney motion picture and inspired by a true story.
