Oakcrest School is pleased to announce its Middle School Theatre production of the Disney musical, Newsies, Jr. The show is inspired by the true story of newsboys in New York City at the turn of the century when newsboys went on strike against publishers raising the distribution prices of newspapers. With music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, the show is sure to be a hit for the family.
Directed by Dr. Krisin O’Malley Ricci, Oakcrest Visual and Performing Arts Master Teacher, and with music directed by Oakcrest Choral Music Director Virginia Tilley, the Oakcrest show will include performances from more than 30 students, as well as a vibrant crew of students working behind the scenes to bring the show to life. Performances will take place on Friday, February 24 and Saturday, February 25 at 7:00 pm at Ernst Theater in Annandale, Virginia.
