Description:

Stop the presses!

It's time to carry the banner with Disney's Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score, featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

Run time: approximately 2 hours 30 minutes, including a 20-minute intermission.

Show Notes:

Newsies Auditionees,
Thank you to everyone who auditioned for Newsies over this past weekend. We greatly enjoyed getting to know you through auditions and callbacks. Please view the full cast under "Company" at the top of the cast list below, and see specific roles and ensembles further down the cast list.

To those who were cast, congratulations! We can’t wait to “seize the day” and start rehearsals with you. Your production fees are now active in your family account. Please pay these by this Saturday, December 16th. More show and rehearsal info will be sent out early this week, so keep an eye on your email.

We are so thankful to everyone for taking the time to rehearse an audition, and are proud of the courage you all showed perfoming for the audition panel. However, due to space limitations at our performance venue, we unfortunately were not able to cast everyone who auditioned. If you do not see your name on the cast list and were not cast in the show, we will be contacting you with helpful audition feedback in the coming weeks. Please wait at least three weeks to contact the artistic team with any audition-related questions so that we can focus on the front-end preparation needed to begin rehearsals.


Sincerely,

The Newsies Artistic Team


Note: Those listed in the Brooklyn, Flushing, Richmond, Woodside, and Manhattan Newsie lists (and the Bronx Newsie) will be featured as Newsies in multiple songs in the show (not just the song “Brooklyn’s Here”).
