In 2020, the headline about “Newsies” was “Canceled.” The Valley High School Drama Club was two weeks from its first performance of the Disney musical when the covid pandemic shutdown started in March. “It was very crushing,” said Spencer Pastrick, 17, a junior from New Kensington who was a freshman then and in the cast. “We had done pretty much the entire show. There was only a few things we had to fix and tweak. To put all that work into something and have it washed away really does stink.” The drama club is circling back to “Newsies” to bring the musical to the stage at Valley High School. The opening performance is Thursday night. “This show has been four years in the making,” said Brian Krugle, musical producer and drama club sponsor. “We had been in the planning stages for two years at that point when we had to shut down.” The musical marks a return to normalcy for the district, with shows fully open to the public and masks optional. A smaller production of “Peter and the Starcatcher” was put on in 2021, with the in-person audience limited to the casts’ households and available to the public by streaming. Between 75% and 80% of the 2020 “Newsies” cast is returning. “We wanted to give them the opportunity to still go ahead and produce the show,” Krugle said. “We wanted them to be able to put the show on stage since they were really into it.” “Newsies” was inspired by the New York City newsboys strike of 1899. The musical was adapted from a 1992 Disney film starting Christian Bale. The movie was considered a flop but found an audience on the Disney Channel and through its home video release. Remade as a stage show, “It was a huge hit,” Krugle said. The cast consists of 45 students from the high school. Another eight students from Riverview, Plum, Burrell and The Ellis School are joining as newsies from Brooklyn. “What helped the Manhattan newsies win the strike was support of child labor from all over the five boroughs of New York,” Krugle said. “We thought it would be pretty cool to have students from other schools come in and represent the kids from the other boroughs who helped the Manhattan newsies.” All but one member of the returning Valley cast are in new roles. Senior Rachel Schrock, 18, of New Kensington is the exception, still portraying Katherine, the lead female character. “When we heard we weren’t actually doing it, that was one of the worst days ever,” Schrock said. “Finally doing it now, though, it’s like everything just came full circle, at least for me. This was the way that I was meant to end my senior year. This is the last role I’m going to have. It’s an honor to actually do it. “I need to do it for everyone that didn’t get to do it.” Pastrick has changed roles among the newsboys, from Davey to Jack Kelly, the leader of the newsies portrayed by Bale in the 1992 film. As Jack, he’ll have a solo song. “It’s very contrasting, the difference between the two,” he said. “Jack has confidence Davey doesn’t have. He’s a lot more fun to play because of the confidence he has.” Devin Bryant was cast as Snyder, a corrupt warden, in 2020. This year, he’s portraying publisher Joseph Pulitzer. While Snyder was a fictional character, Bryant has been reading up on Pulitzer’s life to understand the man he will portray. “I feel like I can get into this role and capture it better. When I’m Pulitzer, I feel there is more of a purpose to what I’m doing and I can understand him better,” said Bryant, 17, a junior from New Kensington. The production got a boost in February when Nikisha Williams, a member of the “Hamilton” touring company that performed in Pittsburgh, conducted a class with drama club members at Valley High School. “She really helped me,” Schrock said. “I’ve been practicing my breathing more. I can hit the notes I couldn’t hit before.” Pastrick said Williams gave a boost to the cast’s confidence. “She showed us that we can do things that we never thought we could do,” he said. “That really opened peoples’ eyes and showed them there’s a lot more they can unlock in themselves.” Krugle said the cast is ready. “It’s going to be a great show,” he said.
