Part 1
Newsies!

Even as newspapers have fallen on hard times, Disney is making money with Newsies.  The musical that took Broadway by storm has now come to Charlotte. It’s a true story about a group of newspaper boys who went on strike for higher pay in the late 19th century – and won!

Part 2
Molly Barker, Red Boot Coalition

We hear about it in the first part of the show and then Molly Barker is back to tell us about her latest endeavor — The Red Boot Coalition — her attempt to address political polarization.

Guests

Dan Deluca - “Jack Kelly” in Newsies

Andrew Wilson - Dance Captain and Swing in Newsies
