Musical (Entirely) In One Weekend

This popular musical theatre immersion entails casting, learning, rehearsing and performing a musical (entirely) in one theatre-infused weekend.


Join us for our most newsworthy M(E)OW yet: Broadway’s smash hit Newsies! Based on the 1992 Disney film, Newsies is the tale of newsboy Jack Kelly, who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. When Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies his army of newsies and factory working kids to STRIKE.

Music by Alan Menken, Book by Harvey Fierstein, and Lyrics by Jack Feldman
