Seizing the Day


Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Disney's 1992 film Newsies has hit the Broadway stage. The new musical follows a band of newsboys who go on strike after they are forced to pay more for the newspapers they sell. Both the film and the Broadway show are based on the true story of the newsboy strike of 1899, in New York City. In March, TFK Kid Reporter Linda Tong spoke with Andy Richardson, 17, one of the stars of the show. Watch the video above to see what he says about becoming a newsie.
