Carbon Dinos Prepare for “Newsies” Production *Photo Gallery*


Although the new school year just began, many Dinos already took to the stage to audition for the upcoming production of “Newsies” on Tuesday and Wednesday. During auditions, cast hopefuls learned music from the production and small dance routine from choreographer Linda Johnstun.

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.

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 and every audience.

The cast of will feature 65 Dinos (full cast list below) with the production running Nov. 19-25. Director Steve Pay decided to add an additional performance due to the popularity of the show. Along with Pay and Johnstun, Rebecca Taylor will join the team as the music director.
