Northland Pines to Present “Newsies” Music and drama students at Northland Pines High School will perform the Broadway musical NEWSIES Friday, Feb. at at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Feb. 10 at 2 p.m. in the NPHS Auditorium. Adult tickets are $5, and senior citizen tickets are $2. Northland Pines students and staff are free of charge. Performances will be held in the NPHS Auditorium. NEWSIES is based on the true story of the 1899 strike of the newsboys of New York City. The show tells 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! 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 of hope and perseverance. Approximately 70 students are involved in the cast, crew, and pit orchestra for the musical this year. Students playing major roles are: senior Malcolm McCanles as Jack Kelly, senior Langdon Langhoff as Katherine, senior Sheamus Roelle as Davey, senior Colton Clure as Crutchie, junior Dane Gleason as Pulitzer, and senior Emily Klopp as Medda Larkin. An ensemble of student singers and dancers will be featured as Newsies, and an additional ensemble will portray various roles throughout the show. Sophomore Olivia Polich will be the student director for the performance. Dance captains are Marie Milanowski and Amy Deditz. Pit Orchestra student musicians include Nicolo Bortolotti, Myriah Strong, Andrew Hartwig, Frank Milanowski, and Drew Schulta. Many students are involved as tech crew, stage crew, set painting, and hair/make-up. The NPHS Musical is directed by Kate Janssen, with choreography by Ann Perry, pit orchestra direction by Jennifer Anderson, acting coaching by Bernie Hupperts and Jeffrey Libby, costume design by Judy Clure, prop design and costuming by Lynn Puffer and Becky Deditz, hair and make-up design by Amy Price, tech direction by Jeff Janssen, set construction by Gary Schwenn of Shiloh Construction, Scot Langhoff of Copperwood Designs, and Lou Deditz, with advertising and graphic design by Ashley Auestad. Northland Pines staff members Laura Plank, Rachel Strong, Forrest Mann, Carie Kluever, and Peter Aerts, in addition to community members Norma Yaeger, Sam Puffer, and Cindy Nelson, will perform in the pit orchestra along with the students. Tickets will be available in the main NPHS office beginning Feb. 1. Tickets are general admission but it is recommended to purchase tickets in advance.
