Sing! Dance! Act! PERFORM

It's time to carry the banner 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 the 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!

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features 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.

Virtual Classes

The Show Must Go On-Line

Dates: April 20th – 30th 2020 - Ages: 8 years to 12 years

SaskExpress Saskatoon and Regina students are invited to join us for this virtual online musical! Each day of the program there will be a 30-minute master class at 2:00 pm, with individual online coaching sessions for voice and drama scheduled for each student (times to fit into the student’s schedule). The show will be recorded and presented in an online format!

A frazzled DRAMA TEACHER sends a video message to her students from her home office, announcing that their production of Brushes With Greatness: The Dental Hygiene Musical has been canceled! She tries to hang up, but accidentally leaves the camera running, as she receives a phone call from the principal who tells her: without the musical, the drama program will be shut down… Faced with no choice the show must go on-line in order to save the drama program! 

This show was written by Jessica Penzias, David Hudson, and Denver Casado in response to all the productions that have been shut down in the past few months and uses technological challenges to create fun and relatable situations with great characters and catchy songs.

If you have ever wanted to write or create something original this is your chance!
