Extra! Extra! Calling All Newsies!
Sun, May 6th, 2012 | 12:30 pm

Get the story behind the famous 1899 newsboys' strike while learning the latest dance moves from the Broadway hit Newsies, taught by Disney Teaching Artists!

Kids of all ages can sign up for dancing workshops, as well as learn about the history of newsies and newspapers. See linotype letters, trays, and holders up close, and use that old technology to make a linotype bookmark and a newspaper collage! We will also be raffling off two tickets to Newsies!

Free with museum admission.
