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!

Role # 1 - Jack Kelly Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The charismatic leader of the Manhattan newsies, is an oprhaned dreamer and artist who yearns to get out of the crowded streets of New York and
make a better life for himself out West. Fiercely protective of his best friend, Crutchie, and strongly loyal, Jack isn't afraid to use his voice to attain
better conditions for the working kids of New York City. Though living on the streets has given him a tough-guy exterior, Jack has a big heart and
can demonstrate a sweet vulnerability – especially when it comes to bantering with a certain female reporter. Must have a great pop tenor voice
and sense of physicality.

Role # 2 - Crutchie Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
A dedicated newsie with a bum leg that's painful, but helps sell more papes. Though he walks with the assistance of a crutch, Crutchie doesn't let it
define him; when in a jam, Jack Kelly's best friend relies on a goofy- sweet sense of humor and optimistic resilience. Crutchie is the heart of the
resistance. Though his movement will suggest his bum leg, Crutchie should still be included in the dance number
