NEWSIES CAST Newsies: IMPORTANT NOTE: We will be reworking the division of LINES and SOLOS in the script to best suit actors vocal ranges and speaking abilities. The character name is ONLY a basis for creating a Newsie persona and does not reflect the amount of lines or solos you will have. If your name has a * you may have a solo. Solos will be reassigned in music rehearsals if needed to make the vocals sound their best. Do not get attached to what you think might be your solo. It is subject to change.
Understudies are listed. Understudies will need to know lines/music/blocking for their characters. Swing Newsies will pick up material for any Newsie who can’t perform or who has to pick up an understudy role. You have to be ready to step in if needed. Chances are you will not need to, but it is possible so we have to have a plan:) Your efforts and work will be rewarded:)
