Summer Youth Theater
Show Dates: August 9th, 10th, 11th, 16th, & 17th
Directed by Patrick Burk with Musical Direction by Kathy White
Adapted from the Disney Movie Newsies the Musical, is a major production that looks at the lives, the loves and the day to day struggles of New York City’s famed newsboys during the hay day of newspaper publishing. Staged during the 1899 real life newsboys strike in New York City, this musical is jam packed with great songs, incredible dances and historical characters. A tremendous hit on Broadway, this film adaptation is sure to bring a lot of excitement to our Harvester 56 Theater stage.
This tuition-free summer youth theater program is open to youth from ages 13 - 21. Auditions are held for the Summer Youth Theater production in June, and rehearsals commence immediately. The participants rehearse evenings and weekends throughout the summer. They participate in fundraising (ad sales, open mic nights, community outreach, etc.) throughout the summer. They create friendships that last a lifetime.
