Name That Song: Newsies Edition
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! The Tony Award-winning Disney hit Newsies comes to Charlotte Jan. 6-11 in Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. The New York City boys from 1899 have been delivering papers – and justice – onstage since the Broadway premiere of their smash-hit show in 2012. Now the musical takes to the road on its first national tour.
Some say the story garnered such a long-lasting cult following that a stage version was a given, and now it’s finally here!
Most Newsies fans say the songs are a big part of the mass appeal. Put your skills to the test and see how much of a Newsies fan you really are. Below are lyrics to three songs from the show. Can you name the song titles?
Let me go.
Somewhere they won’t ever find me, and tomorrow won’t remind me of today.
Suddenly, I’m respectable
Starin’ right at ‘cha
Lousy with stature
Courage is when we face our fear
Tell those with power safe in their tower
We will not obey!
