DISNEY’S NEWSIES JR.

Directed By Joey Landwehr

JCompany Youth Theatre is thrilled to partner with Disney Theatrical Licensing on a special pilot production of Disney’s Newsies Jr. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged "newsies," who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. Based on the 1992 motion picture, with a score by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin) and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (La Cage aux Folles, Kinky Boots). Including beloved songs from the film, “Seize the Day,” “King of New York” and “Santa Fe.”

FEMALE LED CAST! It's the summer of 1776, and the nation is ready to declare independence... if only our founding fathers can agree to do it! 1776 follows John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania and Thomas Jefferson of Virginia as they attempt to convince the members of the Second Continental Congress to vote for independence from the shackles of the British monarchy by signing the Declaration of Independence. 1776 is a funny, insightful and compelling drama with a striking score and legendary book.  JCompany’s production will be led by an all female cast.
