Hilton Head holiday events: Disney’s Newsies onstage @ Arts Center of Coastal Carolina

Newsies Savannah Hilton Head musical

The clear sign that your kids liked the musical you took them to: they add the cast recording to their Christmas list the next day.

That’s what happened after my children – ages 11 & 9 – saw Disney’s Newsies @ Arts Center of Coastal Carolina on Hilton Head Is. They loved it and so did I.

Newsies is onstage through Dec. 31. Based on the 1992 Disney film starring Christian Bale, Newsies the musical is appropriate for elementary-age children and older, who are old enough to sit through a two-hour production (there is an intermission.)

Packed with so much talented tap-dancing, acrobatics, tumbling throughout the entire production – not just the show-stopping number “Seize the Day” – this musical is the perfect high-energy, spirited show to take the kids to over holiday break.

For those who live in the Savannah area, Arts Center of Coastal Carolina is located mid-island near Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove Towne Center – making it about an hour drive from Savannah. (Stop by ‘Tis the Season holiday lights & entertainment Shelter Cove Towne Center. Lights are on nightly until Dec. 30, 5:30-9PM)

Buy tickets at the Box Office 843-842-2787 or online here.

Tickets are $59 for adults and $46 for children.

Fresh off its First National Tour, the Arts Center is thrilled to produce the Carolinas’ premiere of Newsies, with jubilant music by Alan Menken and book by Harvey Fierstein, features high-flying dance with everything from tumbling to tap. Set in New York City at the turn of the century and inspired by the real-life Newsboys strike of 1899, Newsies is about a charismatic newsboy who dreams of a better life far from the streets.
