Disney’s Broadway musical comes to South Florida

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (WSVN) — The cast of Disney’s Newsies is making headlines in South Florida.

The critically acclaimed Broadway musical is taking the stage at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale.

The show tells the story of a New York City newsboy with big dreams, who leads his fellow newsies on strike against publishing giants Pulitzer and Hearst.

University of Miami alum Joey Barreiro leads the national tour as Jack Kelly. "He’s very impulsive, and whenever he’s confronted with a problem, he tries to solve the problem immediately in the moment," Barreiro said, "and he doesn’t take the time to think about things, and that’s sometimes good and sometimes bad, and both of those parts of his character are displayed in the show."

Jack Kelly and the newsies will be seizing the day in South Florida through Nov. 29.
