Newsies

July 28 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Front and Centre Productions’ IGNITE Youth Theatre is proud to present “Newsies”! Audiences will take a journey back to 1899 New York City, where Jack Kelly (Jakob Petree) and his friends Crutchie (Remington Shugarts), Davey (Jeremy Magnetti), and Les (Olivia Williams) work as newsboys. After the wealthy publisher of the New York World, Joseph Pulitzer (Nick Hansel), raises the price of newspapers so the boys can no longer afford them, newsies from all over the city participate in a strike organized by Jack. Meanwhile, Jack has his eye on Katherine Plumber (Lauren Butler), a reporter who is writing a story about the boys, while concealing a major secret. When the strike goes awry, it’s up to Jack’s friends to inspire him to continue to fight. The show will include 80 cast members hailing from 11 school districts, including Altoona, Clearfield, Conemaugh Township, Dubois Central Catholic, Glendale, Johnstown, Moshannon Valley, Philipsburg-Osceola, State College, West Branch, and Young Scholars Charter School.
