Friendswood High School Musical auditions this week for their 2021 52nd Musical, Disney’s Newsies!

Production Dates for Newsies at FHS are:

Set in turn-of-the century New York City, “Newsies” is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged “newsies.” When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what’s right!

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Allen Merkin (“Little Shop of Horrors”, “Sister Act”) and Jack Feldman.  FHS will feature a live  student pitband  and 30 Technical  students who will build sets, do sound engineering, run 25 microphones as well as designing lights and operating the lighting console.

The Production Team of:   Kathy Powdrell/Producer Director, Julio Sanchez/Conductor/PitBand, Amy Thornton/Technical, Michael Tyer/Vocal Director, Kyndal Kennedy/Choreographer and Melissa Smith/assistant Vocal Director look forward to working on the show with FHS students because the show is high energy and packed with non-stop thrills, it has a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

FHS Musical and Performing Arts team is thrilled to offer this opportunity to our students.

The CAST/PIT BAND/and CREW will be announced on the FHS MUSICAL WEBSITE on Friday, NOVEMBER. 20 , 2020 between 4 and 6 pm.
