Broadway Show News by Fathom Events : Due to popular demand and record-breaking cinematic screenings in 2017, "Disney's Newsies: The Broadway Musical!" makes its way back to the big screen for a two-day summer encore event. Captured live at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in September 2016, the event features Jeremy Jordan, who currently stars in the television series "Supergirl," reprising his role as Jack Kelly. In addition to the feature content, audiences will enjoy behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the cast and creators.

Tickets for "Disney's Newsies: The Broadway Musical!" can be purchased at www.FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices.

Fathom Events and Disney Theatrical Productions bring "Disney's Newsies: The Broadway Musical!" to more than 600 select movie theaters on Thursday, July 26 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, July 28 at 12:55 p.m. (all local times). For a complete list of theater locations, visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

Joining Jordan are original Broadway cast members Kara Lindsay as Katherine, Ben Fankhauser as Davey and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Crutchie, and NEWSIES North American Tour stars Steve Blanchard as Joseph Pulitzer, Aisha de Haas as Medda Larkin, and Ethan Steiner as Les.

Since the original Broadway production and its North American Tour, Disney Theatrical Productions has been committed to bring live theatre to audiences across the country. To date, there have been nearly 500 licensed productions of Newsies with 34,150 theatre professionals and students who have engaged with the title.

"After immense success with our previous screenings, we are thrilled to bring the 'newsies' back to cinema audiences nationwide," Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. "'Fansies of all ages will love seeing this fun musical up on the big screen with its memorable soundtrack, incredible cast and unforgettable story."
"We are thrilled that Newsies is returning to cinemas," said Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer, Disney Theatrical Productions. "With theatres and schools across the country now producing their own version of the title, so many young theatre-makers have become part of our growing Newsies family. The Fathom re-release is a chance for them to come together with fans of the show to see the spectacular original Broadway cast and celebrate their own connection to this beloved musical."

Set in New York City at the turn of the century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged 'newsies,' who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys' expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what's right.

NEWSIES, the new American musical, features a Tony Award-winning score with music by eight-time Academy Award®-winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, a book by four-time Tony Award-winner Harvey Fierstein and is produced by Disney Theatrical Productions. NEWSIES is directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work on the show. The entire creative team was reunited to bring the break-out smash musical to audiences across North America.
