The Broadway smash from Disney Entertainment! Based on the true story of the 1899 Newsie's strike which changed child labour laws in the United States, this story was first made into a film in 1996 before becoming a Tony-winning smash hit on Broadway in 2011.
This show was recorded in front of a live audience on June 18, 2021.
Online broadcasts scheduled for 8 August @ 11PDT
Samantha is a lonely, misfit 13-year-old. After getting bullied in camp, she retreats to the old detective movies she loves, entering a film noir fantasy world where she is Samantha Spade, Ace Detective, the go-to gumshoe who always solves the case—for $25 a day, plus Twizzlers.
Sam’s first case enters on the glamorous gams of Veronica Venus, star of stage, screen and the occasional circus. Veronica’s boyfriend, Senator John D. Rockababy, is missing. But something’s fishy, and Samantha’s investigation leads to the dames, palookas, grifters, chiselers, flatfoots and flim-flammers that populate this black and white world.
