Disney’s Newsies Promo


Dylan Zielinski, Anchor

Just after the successful run of Meet The Creeps the Alden theater department now has their eyes set on the 2019-2020 musical, Disney’s “Newsies”. Mr. Macsi, Mrs. Farrell, Ms. Wallace, Mr. Larrabee, and the rest of the theater department are so excited to bring this show to you. I decided to give you an in-depth look at what this hit Disney musical is. Based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, this hit Disney musical tells the story of Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy who dreams of a life as an artist away from the big city. After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys’ expense, Kelly his best friends Davey and Cruchie, Davey’s little brother Les, and the rest of the Newsies take action. With help from the beautiful female reporter Katherine Plumber, all of New York City soon recognizes the power of “the little man.” The musical is filled with upbeat songs like “Carrying the Banner”, “The World Will know”, and “Seize the Day”. Newsies is a very dance heavy show and has many different styles of dance which includes tap and jazz. Auditions are November 21st, 22nd, and 25th.Callbacks are November 27th. Make sure to come and see it the show dates are February 6th, 7th, and 8th at 7 o’clock and one show at 2 o’clock on Saturday November 8th.
