Reston Community Players Presents Disney's 'Newsies'
Disney's Newsies is a production of Reston Community Players' Apprentice Program, a unique program that combines RCP’s high-quality theatrical productions with a focus on student education as we feature local youth aged 13-18 both onstage and behind the scenes.
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by the true story of the Newsboy Strike of 1899, Disney’s Newsies tells the story of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy who dreams of a better life. After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies a ragged band of newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right. Packed with infectious energy and non-stop thrills, this Broadway smash hit is a testament to the power of youth and the importance of standing up and speaking out - a perfect show for the whole family!
Reston Community Players requires that everyone seated inside the theater wear a mask during the performance. Masks are not required in other parts of the facility. Everyone entering Capital One Hall should complete a health self-check. We remind our patrons while attending Reston Community Players productions this season, to please remain socially distanced while approaching the theater doors and allow extra time to be seated.
