Students of GALA, seize the day with us this fall! Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein. When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.

At Opening Night Theater, we focus on community, confidence, and character. Our after school musical theatre program offers theatre fundamentals, scene work, movement, choreography, singing, and more!

Crew positions will vary depending on the participants areas of interests. Our crew will have the opportunity to assist with set design, wardrobe, tech, makeup, and stage management.

Rehearsals will be held at Catch One, at 4067 W Pico Blvd. This venue is just one mile from GALA, and approximately a 20 minute walk. One of our ON! Theater directors will accompany the students walking to rehearsal. Catch One houses multiple stages and rehearsal spaces, making it an ideal rehearsal location.

Our performances will be held at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre, also in walking distance from GALA, at 4401 W 8th St, Los Angeles, CA 90005.
