Are you ready to be “Carrying the Banner”? Then join us as we bring the Broadway version of “Newsies” to Georgetown! With songs like “Seize the Day”, “King of New York”, “Santa Fe”, and “Once and for All” students will dive deep into singing, dancing and acting.
A few weeks before class begins, students will receive detailed information on auditions which will be held on Saturday, August 18th at 9:30am. Everyone registered in the class is in the show – these auditions are just for parts. Performances will be January 4-6 with full run-throughs and technical rehearsals on December 27-28 and January 2-3.
Due to the intense amount of dancing required in this show, it is STRONGLY recommended that students take the “Newsies” Cast Dance Workshop Monday, August 6th through Thursday, August 9th from 1:00-4:15pm. Students will spend the first half of class learning tap and the second half of class learning tricks and leaps. This workshop is NOT required but strongly recommended.
We also highly recommend students who register for “Newsies” to take the Theater Intensive summer camp the week of July 30-August 3. Students will receive vocal, dance, technical, and acting training which will help them prepare for their auditions for “Newsies”. Again, this is NOT required but highly recommended!
To register for the dance workshop and/or the theater intensive, please go to the “register” page which will give you directions and a link to a parent portal where you can register. These two camps/workshops will be located under the summer sessions in the parent portal.
