NEWSIES THE MUSICAL is the summer production by the NewArts wing of the 1214 Foundation of Newtown. The show involves over 100 local Connecticut children under the direction of Michael Unger with choreography adapted from the Christopher Gattelli’s Tony Award-winning, Broadway production. The inspiring message of NEWSIES truly is perfect for the whole family and the multi-generational audience cheered throughout for this talented cast, crew and orchestra. Producing Artistic Director Michael Unger always knows how to showcase every actor no matter how small and effectively make use of the performance space; in this production the cutest of the newsies were carrying the banner everywhere to the delight of the audience.
