Disney comes to Bartlesville once again in May with the Bartlesville High School production of Disney’s Newsies-The Broadway Musical. Newsies will open on Friday, May 3 at 7 p.m. with additional performances on Saturday, May 4 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m. All performances will be in the auditorium at the Bartlesville High School Fine Arts Center at 18th Street and Hillcrest Drive.

The show only runs 1 weekend, so don't miss it. More than 60 very talented high school students are in the cast. Auditions took place in early March and rehearsals started immediately. 

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner
Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
