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! Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story.

Take center stage with this skill-intensive performance class! Students will refine acting skills through the process of auditioning, rehearsing, and performing in a full-length play. Professional actors, directors, and choreographers straight off Childsplay's stages will direct the musical. The first two weeks of rehearsals are on our main campus and the last week students rehearse at the Tempe Center for the Arts with final performances at 11 am and 2 pm on Friday, June 26th.

Note about Extended Care:

All extended care takes place at Childsplay's Campus for Imagination and Wonder in Tempe. During the final week of this class, when rehearsals occur at the Tempe Center for the Arts, young people enrolled in extended care will be transported between the theater and campus by Childsplay staff in company vehicles. Caregivers must sign a vehicle release for students enrolled in an onstage class and extended care.
