Newsies
1992
 
It's 1899, and the ragtag orphans who deliver the news to New York City stage a protest when publisher Joseph Pulitzer raises the price they must shell out for their supply of papers. Can they unite the oppressed and fight the powers that be? Inspired by a local trolley workers' strike, newsie Jack Kelly (Christian Bale) sets out to organize the boys into a union, with David Jacobs (David Moscow) as the outfit's brains and Jack as its spokesman.

Pretty good plotline and characterizations. Sort of "Little Orphan Annie" meets Econ 101. Not very memorable songs, though.
