With more than two years and 1,000 shows under its belt, Newsies will say goodbye to Broadway. The Disney musical is scheduled to close on Aug. 24 at the Nederlander Theatre. But it's not time to say so long for good — a national tour commences October 2014. The North American tour will visit cities across the U.S. and Canada beginning Oct. 11, 2014 and continuing through Aug. 16, 2015, with more dates likely to be announced.

Newsies on Broadway became a somewhat-unexpected hit for Disney. The company originally thought they would develop the musical for regional, stock, and amateur markets but were surprised when the musical fared well as a Broadway production. It was an especially welcome success, given that the original film version from 1992 didn't do well. In comparison, the Broadway version has racked up more than $100 million, while the movie version earned a mere $3 million.

See below for the production's upcomnig tour dates and visit the Newsies for more information on tickets.
