Disney's NEWSIES to have UK Premiere at London's Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre from 28 November 2022

Producer Runaway Entertainment is delighted to announce that Disney’s NEWSIES, the award-winning Broadway musical with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman and book by Harvey Fierstein, will have its UK premiere at London’s Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, where the strictly limited season will run from 28 November 2022.

Based on a true story, NEWSIES is set in New York City at the turn of the 19th century. It’s the rousing tale of a ragged band of teenage newspaper sellers, who dream of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. After newspaper magnate Joseph Pulitzer hikes up the prices for his papers charged to the newsies, Jack Kelly rallies his fellow newsboys in an attempt to protest the change, falling in love with young reporter Katherine along the way. These young newsies from across the city come together and rise up against the exploitation of wealthy publishing tycoons and fight for justice using the only power they have – solidarity. 

The original production of NEWSIES opened on Broadway in 2012 and was slated to play only 100 performances but went on to play over 1,000 performances before touring and winning two Tony Awards®, including Best Original Score. The original production was filmed live on stage and released in cinemas in 2017.

BRING IT ON the Musical cancels UK tour, the show will play its final performance on 22 January 202 at the Southbank Centre

The producers of Bring It On The Musical today sadly announce that due to the impact of rising Covid-19 cases and self-isolation requirements resulting in 13 cancelled performances, the show will no longer be able to continue its tour. Performances at the Southbank Centre are unaffected by this cancellation. Therefore, the production will play at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall until it concludes its final performance on 22 January 2022.

Selladoor Worldwide said today, “Cancelling 13 performances has resulted in an overwhelming loss of income for the production during a peak period that would otherwise have provided a vital financial backbone of the tour. This lost income, amounting to hundreds of thousands of pounds, has sadly rendered the remainder of the tour financially unsustainable. It would be irresponsible for us to continue, and we therefore have no option but to cancel the remainder of the tour.
