Our school play this year is a junior version of “Newsies”. It is very exciting for our students, since it is a true story about how children made a difference in history. These newsies, or paper deliverers, went up against the newspaper giants of New York City in 1899.
“Newsies” has had great success on Broadway and is a Disney movie.
