GFS presents: Newsies!

Last weekend, the Upper School (along with a few players from the Middle School) presented Newsies, the Disney film turned Broadway hit that inspires everyone to fight for what's right and seize the day. In three shows throughout Friday and Saturday--plus a "sneak peek" Thursday evening show--our students put on a dazzling, entertaining performance!

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! Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsies features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.

Congrats to our hard-working cast and crew for their fantastic performances.
