Extra Extra, sing all about it! Newsies The Musical is now available on Disney Movies Anywhere! A great musical for a family movie night, Newsies is a story to be passed down from generation to generation. Newsies The Musical has some extra pizzazz as it was filmed live on stage and I’ve got some ideas for an epic Newsies The Musical Family Movie Night!
Newsies The Musical Family Movie Night
First, you can’t have a family movie night without a movie, or in the case musical. Get your copy of Newsies The Musical on Disney Movies Anywhere or Amazon Prime so it’s ready to stream on Chromecast when you are.
Filmed live on stage, this high-energy, not-to-be-missed show features stars of the original, Tony Award®-winning Broadway production joined by those of the North American tour. Set in New York City at the turn of the last century and based on a true story, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, leader of a ragged band of teenage “newsies” who dream only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when two publishing titans raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for.

A fun photo opp is a great way to capture memories of your family movie nights. You can make a quick and easy one by hanging newspaper on the wall for a backdrop, or hanging Newsies Posters. Have bow-ties, messenger bags, and Newsboy Caps on hand for photo props. Or you could just grab everything, hop on the couch, and start singing like the twins did. Either way, snap some pictures before or after the movie and you’ll always be able to look back on a fun family movie night.
When it come to snacks for a Newsies Movie Night, you could fill newspaper cones with popcorn or serve hoagies wrapped in parchment paper. For the adults, this Newsboy Cocktail would be a nice treat, too!
If your family is like mine, having Sketch Pads and Sketching Pencils handy is a must. My husband, daughter, and son all love to sketch for fun. They may have even wanted to start their own newspaper after watching Newsies The Musical…I’m eagerly awaiting the first issue of Collins Weekly Tribune. Until then, seize the day and plan your next family movie night with Newsies on Disney Movies Anywhere!
