This is a three-week camp open to students entering 6th grade through 18 years old. Our production team works with students to develop an appropriate stage presence, hone vocal skills, increase dancing repertoire, and build a troupe of actors who respect each other and the arts. The last Thursday and Friday are performance days with one matinee and one evening show each day in our state-of-the-art facility, complete with full sets, lighting, and costumes.
Disney’s Newsies JR. is a 60-minute version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.
When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys’ expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what’s right.
Camp is 8am-3pm Monday-Friday except the performance days which are the last Thursday and Friday of camp. Camp hours performance days are 8am-11:30am and 5:30pm – 9pm.
Refunds will not be issued after May 15th under any circumstances.
