Our sixth grade drama club will perform Disney’s “Newsies Jr.” on Friday, March 11 and Saturday, March 12 at 7 p.m. in the Jr./Sr. High School Auditorium. The inspiring 60-minute musical, designed for middle school-aged performers, and is based on the 1992 Disney film “Newsies” and the 2012 Broadway production of the same name. The cast is comprised of 34 sixth-grade students led by Mrs. Mary Skelly and Mr. Darrell Holovach. 

 

It’s time to carry the banner with Disney’s Newsies JR.! You’ll be doing flips for the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of young newsies in Manhattan. When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsies’ expense, Jack rallies young workers from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right! Adapted especially for young performers, this musical features a Tony Award®-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award®-winner Harvey Fierstein, and includes rousing songs like “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “King of New York.” Newsies JR. is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message perfect for the whole family and every audience.
