The Ballston Spa High School Troupe presents Newsies, a family friendly show. Newsies is a musical based on the 1992 Disney movie musical. The cast of 42 students will take you back to 1899, telling the story of Jack Kelly (Harrison Martinez), a charismatic newsboy and his fellow newsboys as they dream of a better life. The story shows how they ban together with reporter, Katherine Plummer (Molly Filburn) to strike against the big newspaper publisher, Pulitzer (Peter Evans) for what is right. Performances are scheduled for March 21, 22 at 7 PM and March 23 at 1 PM and 7 PM at the Ballston Spa High School auditorium, 220 Ballston Ave. Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for students and available at the door.
