“Newsies” Production Rapidly Approaches *Photo Gallery*


The cast of Carbon High School’s upcoming production of “Newsies” has been hard at work preparing for the performance in November. The production is slated for November 19-23 and 25 with a matinee on Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. All other shows will begin at 7 p.m. in the Carbon High auditorium.

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 production will feature more than 60 Dinos who have been preparing for months to present their efforts to the community. Steve Pay is directing the students while Linda Johnstun serves as the choreographer and Rebecca Taylor as the music director.
