The Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) continues its 2017 Nutmeg Summer Series Lineup in Storrs CT with the Connecticut Repertory Theatre (CRT) Artistic Director Terrence Mann and Executive Producer Matthew J. Pugliese version of "Newsies"!

Previous productions for the 2017 Summer Series included  “1776” (June 1 - June 10, 2017),  “Noises Off” (June 15 - June 25, 2017) and now the season will conclude with “Disney’s Newsies” running July 6 - July 16, 2017.

Tickets are available at crt.uconn.edu or call (860) 486 2113.

The theatrical adaptation of Disney’s musical film, “Disney’s Newsies” directed by Tony Award-nominee Christopher d’Amboise. Featuring a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, “Disney’s Newsies” tells the story of the “Newsboy Strike of 1899”. This fictionalized story explores themes of social injustice and exploitive labor, as the newsboys learn to harness their voice in this high octane, dance spectacular. CRT will “seize the day” and bring this fresh, new musical hot from Broadway and the National Tour circuit to Storrs.

Mann added, “Youth! Survival! Love! Politics!—all combine to make “Newsies” a tour de force musical story about the indomitability of the human spirit. It’s powerful, it’s passionate and full of heart!”

In his first year as Artistic Director, Mann says, “Six years ago Vince Cardinal brought me to Storrs for my first summer to do ‘My Fair Lady’ and ever since I’ve been trying to get back as often as I can. There is no greater joy than to be in a company of actors, young and old alike, whose sole purpose is to share the gift of great storytelling with folks who make it apart of their lives to support and nurture live theatre.”

You can see Newsies in the Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre on the campus of the University of Connecticut

Join us at the Connecticut Repertory Theatre as we view the "Newsies" and “seize the day” to watch this fresh new, musical — hot from Broadway to you at CRT!
