Newsies the Musical
UPDATE (March 16, 2020): In keeping with Chattanooga Christian School's commitment to social distancing to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, all on-campus activities have been suspended until April 14. This includes the High School musical production of Newsies which has been postponed indefinitely. Those who have already purchased tickets for the musical will receive a full refund, including the processing fee, from ShowTix4U. School and Theatre Department leadership are currently looking into the possibility of rescheduling performances.
Chattanooga Christian School's Theatre Department is proud to present Disney's Newsies as its annual Spring Musical. Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right.
Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Newsies is directed and choreographed by Mary Catherine Schimpf, who is assisted by Ellie Austin, with music direction by Kara Riley, technical direction by Heath Austin, and scenic design by David Macallister. Newsies contains some mild language.
