Globe LIVE and 9 Works Theatrical are proud to announce their latest production of Disney’s internationally acclaimed musical, NEWSIES, coming this July 2017.
NEWSIES is a stage musical based on the 1992 musical film Newsies, which in turn was inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City. The show has music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman, and a book by Harvey Fierstein. The musical premiered at the Paper Mill Playhouse in 2011 and made its Broadway debut in 2012.
The team opens online auditions nationwide from February 15 to 25, mostly for males aged 15 years above.
