The Theatre Lab's Summer Musical Institute for Teens students perform in Newsies, music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman, book by Harvey Fierstein, based on Disney film by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White.

Inspired by the New York Newsboy Strike of 1899, Newsies is a timely coming-of-age story with a fight for economic justice at its core, and an uplifting testament to what can be accomplished when young people find their voices and stand together. 

Performances take place August 15 - 17. Evening performances on August 15, 16, and 17 at 7:30pm. Matinee performance on August 17 at 2pm. All performances take place at our downtown home (733 8th St NW).
