These items are due Sept 5. In order to maintain your role, all items must be turned in on time. Please have your character name written on each item in sharpie so we can see it but it is not visible on the costume. Please be advised that we may cut sleeves off shirts or turn pants into knickers.
Rather than doing a fee this year, you will just need to get your costume items. Please look up images online of Newsies and other characters to get ideas on how to create your look. Your look should go with your character. Please see the images below of the outfit Ethan created and of sample Brooklyn Newsies.
All items can be purchased either on Amazon, at a store, or at a thrift store.
In addition to the items listed below, Newsies may also need dance boots. You can buy costly leather ones ($100) or canvas jazz boots (white and dye them navy or brown), beige or black for about $30. You can also buy smooth soles dress boots and get stick on suede to create a dance sole so they can be reused later.
Newsies in Kings of NY will also need tap shoes. We have those at school, so check there first to see if we have your size.
Please wait to buy shoes as we will determine who is dancing and who is not in early rehearsals.
