We are so excited to be presenting our first completely original new musical! Based on the historical events surrounding the newsboys strike of 1899 this gritty, yet charming adventure features a cast of unlikely characters, bloodpumping drama, and a great new score! If you are interested in being a part of this really cool project we are still looking for volunteers (13 and up) to serve as costumers, set crew and technicians! Contact Mark at Family Theatre Warehouse for more information!
Well kids I am still working on getting the new music up for your listening and rehearsal pleasure but here are a couple of great links to find out about the history behind this exciting story!
*Here's a great site with lots of details about the actual Newsboys lodging house!
*Here's one about the actual Mother Heig and her husband, the superintendant of the lodging house!
That's all for now, but stay tuned for upcoming images of the set design, excerpts from the script and more!
