Disney's Tony Award-winning smash hit musical Newsies has taken Omaha by storm. Newsies The Musical is based on the 1992 musical film Newsies, which in turn was inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City.
Upfront at 4's Lindsey Theis chatted with cast member Steve Blanchard, who plays Joseph Pulitzer in the show about the production, and what it's like to be back performing with his family in Omaha.
Performances continue Friday at 8:00 p.m., Saturday at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., and Sunday at 1:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater.
Tickets start at $40 each and are available at the Ticket Omaha Box Office inside the Holland Performing Arts Center, 12th and Douglas streets, online at TicketOmaha.com; or by phone 402.345.0606.
