It’s time to seize the day and catch Talent Machine Company’s summer production of Disney’s “Newsies,” which opened the weekend of August 9-11 and runs August 15-18 in Annapolis. Inspired by the real-life newsboys’ strike of 1899, “Newsies” combines an inspiring storyline with unforgettable song-and-dance numbers. Talent Machine’s cast brings together teenagers ages 14-18 from all over the region, including Severna Park actors Gianna Dicks, Anthony Dicks, Caroline Patterson, Abby Schemmel and Deepak Thumma.
“I’m so impressed with these kids,” said director Christine Martini. “They’ve exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be prouder of the work they’ve done. The dancing and singing in this show are at a level that you see in professional theater. These kids will blow you away.”
Performances of “Newsies” are at 7:30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 2:00pm on Sunday. To order tickets, visit www.talentmachine.com.
