CONTENT/AGE  RESTRICTIONS: NEWSIES is a full-length musical based on the 1992 Disney film of the same name. It is the story of a group of newspaper boys who go on strike against the corrupt greedy newspaper magnates against the historical backdrop of turn-of-last-century New York City. There are stylized depictions of fighting/street violence, some innuendo and strong language, and a strong pro-union/anti-establishment sentiment throughout.
