Disney's Newsies JR. is a 60-minute version of the 2012 Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.


When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.

Click below to reserve a spot in either the Broadway Style (individual) or Group Auditions. Broadway Style Auditions require the preparation of a song and a monologue to present to our production panel while a participation in group auditions does not require any preparation and is the best option for those new to theater.

ALL CHOREOGRAPHY AUDITIONS will be held on Sunday for all actors from (Individual and Group) auditions. Saturday's individual auditionees will need to return on Sunday for Choreography Auditions.

The First Round of choreography auditions will include everyone of all skill levels for general musical theater style dance. The Second Round will be those who have TAP experience.

A Note on Group Auditions:

We have been asked if Group Auditions are for ensemble roles only. Absolutely Not. We regularly cast leads and supports from those attending group auditions. The only difference is where the actor puts their time. They either put their time into preparing for a 5 minute audition or they put your time into letting us get to know them and see what they can do in a group setting. Group auditions are much more fun and less pressure.
