Based on the 1992 motion picture, and inspired by a true story, Newsies is set in turn-of-the-century New York City. This Tony Award-winning musical is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies."

Role # 3 Crutchie
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Crutchie is the heart of the resistance. Though his movement will suggest his bum leg, Crutchie should still be included in the dance numbers.
