Children’s Playhouse of Maryland, in residence at CCBC Essex, proudly presents Disney’s Newsies, The Musical as part of its Young Adult Series. Performances will be held May 3-19, and feature a sensory-friendly show as well as a sign language-interpreted show.

Inspired by the Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York, the musical tells the story of Jack Kelly, a “newsie” with a talent for art and aspirations of moving to Santa Fe. Along with his buddy Crutchie, he makes a meager living selling papers for publisher Joseph Pulitzer.

Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased in advance by calling the CCBC Box Office, 443-840-ARTS (2787) 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, or online at cpmarts.org.
