Facebook Events near Menomonie

Menomonie Theater Guild proudly announces auditions for Disney’s Newsies the Musical, directed by Katie Shay, with musical direction by Mark Pruett and Dominique Stewart, and choreography by Rita Black.

Based on the 1992 motion picture, inspired by a true story, and 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!


Main Cast (ages 9+) auditions on August 6th or 7th at 6PM will consist of 3 parts: vocal audition, dance audition, and acting audition. Preparation is necessary; details and materials can be found in the Audition Packet (available for download at

Children under the age of 9 are encouraged to audition for Wee Newsies from 5-6PM August 6th or 7th. These roles will participate in select scenes and musical numbers, and will focus on teaching stage presence, teamwork, and character development. Auditions for Wee Newsies will consist of a group exercise and song taught at auditions (no preparations necessary).
