Coming to Scharmann Theatre

Newsies: The Musical

Set in New York City at the start of the 20th century, Newsies focuses on Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When newspaper publishers raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to go on strike.

Newsies is based on a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Julie Costantini will direct the production.


The auditions, which are on June 4 at 7 p.m. in Scharmann Theatre, are open to JCC students, high school students, and community members. Performances will be held in November.

Those auditioning should be prepared to sing a song from Newsies and wear proper clothing and shoes for dance auditions.
