Extra! Extra! Disney’s Newsies Hits the Village Theatre Stage

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

newsies press7Village Theatre is proud to present one of the most spectacular dance shows in its history, Disney’s Newsies. Based on the Newsboys Strike of 1899, the narrative follows Jack Kelly and his crew of ragtag newsboys who become unlikely heroes when they stand up for what’s right. 

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Newsies as one of my final shows as Artistic Director at Village Theatre,” said director, Steve Tomkins. “We have a truly exceptional cast that is going to blow everyone away. While we’re certainly looking to honor and celebrate the film and the Broadway show, we’re creating our own unique Village Theatre production.” And there is no better example of that than the high caliber dance scenes choreographed with precision by Katy Tabb. “Every aspect of this show is being built to facilitate some really incredible dancing,” said Tabb, “The music, costumes, and jungle gym-like set combined with this phenomenal cast is thrilling.”

“Seize the Day” with the newsboys of New York as they go from delivering the news to topping headlines. Newsies is onstage in Village Theatre’s Everett location from January 5- 28, 2018. Visit for more information.
