So You Think You Can Dance Alums Join Newsies Musical
After a successful run at New Jersey’s Papermill Playhouse, Disney’s newest musical Newsies is Broadway bound. Pulling out their pageboy hats and getting ready for their Broadway debuts are four of our favorite So You Think You Can Dance contestants: Evan Kasprzak (Season 5), Jess LeProtto (Season 8), Alex Wong (Season 7), and Thayne Jasperson (Season 4).
With music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Jack Feldman, and a book by Harvey Fierstein, Newsies brings together some of Broadway’s best to create a show that The New York Times calls “A stirring crowd pleaser!”
Performances run for 12 weeks only - March 15th through June 10th. Tickets go on sale Monday January 30th at 10am and can be purchased in person at the Nederland Theater or online through Ticketmaster.
Don’t miss your chance to see Evan, Jess, Alex, and Thayne dancin’ and singin’ 8 shows a week! We’re so stoked for them!
Check out the cast of Newsies giving a sneak peak of the songs, dancing, and fun on ABC’s The View.
