Aspire Performing Arts Company is thrilled to once again partner with Music Theatre International and Disney Theatrical Group on a special pilot production of Newsies JR.! Based on the 1992 motion picture and the hit Broadway musical, Newsies JR. features a score by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by four-time Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies JR. is the story of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of newsies, who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. For this pilot process, Newsies JR. has been adapted for young performers.
