Inspired by true events, the Broadway smash hit is a testament to the power of standing up and speaking out. Jack: (Teens - early 20s, any ethnicity) The charismatic leader of the Manhattan newsies, is an orphaned dreamer and artist who yearns to get out of the crowded streets of New York and make a better life for himself out West. Fiercely protective of his best friend, Crutchie, and strongly loyal, Jack isn't afraid to use his voice to attain better conditions for the working kids of New York City. Though living on the streets has given him a tough-guy exterior, Jack has a big heart and can demonstrate a sweet vulnerability- especially when it comes to bantering with a certain female reporter. Must have a great pop tenor voice and sense of physicality. Crutchie: (Teens – early 20s, any ethnicity) is a dedicated newsie with a bum leg that's painful, but helps sell more papers. Though he walks with the assistance of a crutch, Crutchie doesn't let it define him; when in a jam, Jack Kelly's best friend relies on a goofy-sweet sense of humor and optimistic resilience. Crutchie is the heart of the resistance. Davey: (Teens – early 20s, any ethnicity), Les’s straight-laced, bright big brother starts selling newspapers to help his family earn a living, but becomes swept up in the fervor of the strike. A leader in his own right who is learning to use his voice to uplift others, Davey is the brains of the resistance. Les: (8-14, any ethnicity) Davey's cheeky younger brother, is inspired by the freedom of the newsies and loves their independent lifestyle. A precocious and natural newsie, Les is an intuitive sales boy and a pint-sized charmer. Nun/ Medda Larkin: (30s -50s, any ethnicity) Inspired by the vaudeville performer Aida Overton Walker, this big-voiced saloon singer and star of the Bowery offers her theater as a safe haven for the newsies. An astute entertainer with great comic delivery, she's a good friend to Jack and stands firmly behind the newsies in their fight for justice. _______________ “Dear Jack, Dear Louise” (LORT B.

Seeking:Judy Garland (Frances Gumm): 18-29, a brilliant young actress and singer to play Judy Garland at ages 13 16. Physically, Judy is going through an awkward stage but what she lacks in glamour she more than makes up for in effervescence. She has the energy of a pep squad and a never-say-die commitment to succeed, combined with a ready wit and a wicked sense of the absurd. More than anything, Judy just wants to be loved and accepted for who she is. Her vulnerability is as fragile as her self esteem.
