Audition Description

Based on the real-life Newsboy Strike of 1899, this new Disney musical tells the story of Jack Kelly, a rebellious newsboy who dreams of a life as an artist away from the big city. After publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer raises newspaper prices at the newsboys' expense, Kelly and his fellow newsies take action.

Please come prepared with a 16-32 bar cut of a musical theatre song to to sung a cappella. Also, wear or bring comfortable clothes for a dance portion of the audition following your vocal audition.

  • Role #1 - Jack Kelly

    The charismatic leader of the Manhattan newsies, is an oprhaned dreamer and artist who yearns to get out of the crowded streets of New York and make a better life for himself out West. Fiercely protective of his best friend, Crutchie, and strongly loyal, Jack isn\'t afraid to use his voice to attain better conditions for the working kids of New York City. Though living on the streets has given him a tough-guy exterior, Jack has a big heart and can demonstrate a sweet vulnerability – especially when it comes to bantering with a certain female reporter. Must have a great pop tenor voice and sense of physicality.

  • Role #2 - Crutchie

    A dedicated newsie with a bum leg that\'s painful, but helps sell more papes. Though he walks with the assistance of a crutch, Crutchie doesn\'t let it define him; when in a jam, Jack Kelly\'s best friend relies on a goofy- sweet sense of humor and optimistic resilience. Crutchie is the heart of the resistance. Though his movement will suggest his bum leg, Crutchie should still be included in the dance numbers.
