Show Information: 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! Newsies is packed with non stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
Looking for a Large Diverse cast, All Races,Genders, and Ethnicities will be considered for most parts. This includes 9 featured roles, and a diverse ensemble that often doubles/triples characters throughout the show. PLEASE NOTE THE ENSEMBLE BREAKDOWN FOR CHARACTER LISTING ON SMALLER, FEATURED ROLES (We will adhere to that casting list as closely as possible for ensemble)
