Extra! Extra! NEWSIES is hot off the press!

A new Disney musical gets on Philippine stage as Globe Live and 9 Works Theatrical bring Newsies on July 7 to 30 at the Globe Iconic Stage in BGC.
Bringing back one of our homegrown talents and a Disney guy himself, Gian Magdangal as Jack Kelly, together with a bunch of guys strutting the stage with songs based on the book about 1899 newsboys rallies in protest against rising distribution rates put forward by publishing giants Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst. From newsboys to activists, the musical dramatizes the David-versus-Goliath fight for social justice and better working conditions. See the members of the cast in the videos below:

Songs are composed by Alan Menken and brought to movement by PJ Rebullida using jazz and ballet movements that the cast have worked on with Training Grounds. Watch the webisode below:
In the previously held press conference at Ibiza Beach Club in BGC, they performed a few songs which also showcased excerpts of the hardcore choreography. Watch it here.

It's great to have Gian back into Philippine theater from a stint at Hong Kong Disneyland’s The Golden Mickeys and Universal Studios Japan. Joining him as part of the newsboys are Jef Flores (recent Gawad Buhay awardee for Outstanding Lead Actor for Tick, Tick…BOOM! ), Daniel Drilon (Secret Garden, Fun Home), Tory Cortez (Hansel and Gretel, A Christmas Carol), Luis Marcelo (Little Shop of Horrors), and Alex Diaz (Host & TV Personality, MYX VJ). Also in the cast are Danielle Chopin (Into the Woods, My Fair Lady), Greg Dulcie (The Wizard of Oz, Sweeney Todd), Pinky Marquez (The Wedding Singer, Beauty and the Beast), and Raymund Concepcion (Annie, The Little Mermaid).

Rounding up the cast are Franz Imperial, Ariel Reonal, Joni Galeste, Melissa Bell, Ian Ocampo, Ronelson Yadao, Erick Arenas, Jourdan Bartolome, Mark Anthony Grantos, Jim Ferrer, Chesko Rodriguez, Kendrick Ibasco, Anton Posadas, Stephen ViƱas, Clark dela Riva, Jon Abella, MC dela Cruz, Vyen Villanueva and Jan Mayo.
