Watch: The Cast of Paper Mill Playhouse’s ‘Newsies’ Perform on ‘The View’

I remember Newsies from when I was a kid (maybe I was a kid, I can’t remember) and loving it. I also remember that I was the only one of my friends who loved it.

Well, the Disney musical that starred a young Christian Bale has been turned into a stage musical.

The cast from the Paper Mill Playhouse production of Newsies were featured on ABC’s The View where they performed the songs “Seize The Day” and “Santa Fe” from the show.

Adapted for the stage from the film, the show is based on the 1899 true story of a courageous group of scrappy newsboys who become unlikely heroes when they rally forces to fight an unscrupulous newspaper tycoon. The musical features a book by Harvey Fierstein, lyrics by Jack Feldman, and music by composer Alan Menken.

The production runs until October 16th with Jeff Calhoun directing.
