Lower Ossington Theatre is casting all roles in our upcoming production of Disney’s Newsies The Broadway Musical.
Stop the presses! This Disney film turned Tony-winning Broadway hit inspires everyone to fight for what's right and seize the day.
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!
Directed by: Alan Kinsella
Choreographed by: Adam Sergison
