If “Newsies” were written today and took place in one of the towns in the Lincoln-Way area instead of New York city, then Joseph Pulitzer might have had an even more difficult strike to contend with.

That’s because the upcoming production of Disney’s “Newsies” by Oak Lawn Park District Theatre Program features at least eight actors from the Lincoln-Way area.
