City Circle Theatre company is excited to announce that the 2019 teen show is Disney’s Newsies directed by Leslie Nolte and Chis Okiishi. Auditions will be March 3,4, and 5 at the Community of Christ Church in Coralville.Set in turn-of-the century New York City and based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. But when titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to harness their power against a corrupt establishment and to strike against unfair conditions and fight for what’s right. Through courage, determination, and friendship, the newsies are ready to seize the day and take a stand.
A high energy show packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, Newsies is perfect for the whole family.
