Information: Ages 14 and up. We will be double casting: One cast of Newsboys will be boys; the other cast of Newsboys will be girls. Role Information HERE.
Please arrive to auditions at either of the dates mentioned as close to 6PM as possible. Please come with a prepared song—sheet music or karaoke CD (music only; no one singing on the CD). Even if you are auditioning for a non-singing role, we would like for you to sing something; even “Happy Birthday”. An accompanist will be provided and we will have a CD player on hand if needed. No monologues necessary. Those being considered for singing roles and non-singing roles will be asked to read from the script which will be given and assigned to you at the audition or callbacks.
CTG believes in non-traditional casting and encourages everyone to come out. Please bring your calendar so you can list any and all conflicts during the rehearsal period.
Rehearsals will begin approximately July 30, 2018. Rehearsals will primarily be weeknights and/or weekends depending on needs of production and availability of actors/staff.
Disney’s Newsies (September 14-30, 2018) Music by Alan Menken, Lyrics by Jack Feldman, Book by Harvey Fierstein
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsiesfeatures a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
It’s time to carry the banner on your stage with Disney’s Newsies! 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!
