From Disney to Broadway, and now to Niagara-on-the-Lake: the Yellow Door Theatre Project is holding auditions for the fall production of “Newsies.”

Auditions will be held on June 4 at the Yellow Door’s location in Virgil.

The theatre is seeking to bring on 28 performers between the ages of 10 and 18. No experience is required for those auditioning.

The theatre’s fall company production will premiere at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre on Dec. 6.

The Disney film-turned-Broadway musical came out in 1992 and was inspired by the newsboys’ strike of 1899 in New York City.

The play has won two Tony Awards for Best Original Score, and is known for its most popular songs including “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day” and “Santa Fe.”

Those interested in auditioning can book a time slot at yellowdoortheatre.com.
