Zilker Hillside Theatre presents Newsies. Loosely based on real events, “Newsies” follows a group of paperboys, led by the charismatic Jack Kelly. A sudden increase in newspaper prices demanded by paper owner Joseph Pulitzer makes it harder and harder for the boys to earn enough from sales to support themselves. Eventually, the boys rally together and, little by little, newsies all over the city strike to force change. Meanwhile, a concerned reporter does what she can to help. But, met with seemingly insurmountable resistance from powerful higher-ups, victory is anything but clear until Gov. Theodore Roosevelt finally intervenes, putting Pulitzer and the other publishers in their place.“Newsies” performances will be staged at Zilker Hillside Theatre, 2206 William Barton, Thurs - Sun at 8:15pm through August 13. Running time is 2 hours, 30 minutes.For information, visit zilker.org/summer-2022
