Directors Roundtable Backdrops

Extra--read all about it! TheatreWorld has all the Newsies backdrops you need! Newsies sets generally feature multiple levels of scaffolding. If you go this route, add a backdrop to really set the scene, like NEWSPAPER ROW, which depicts this famous area of New York at the turn of the century, or industrial VINTAGE CITY STREET - B, with its cobblestones and looming factory. For an abstract choice, choose NEWSPRINT--and add coordinating NEWSPRINT HEADER and NEWSPRINT LEGS to really get your story across! To cover other scenes, use bleak ORPHANAGE for The Refuge and THEATRE BACKSTAGE for Medda's Theater. Finally, use IRONWORKS HEADER and IRONWORKS LEGS to mimic the scaffolding look without having to build it. You'll be "King of New York"--or any other town, for that matter--with a TheatreWorld backdrop behind your production of Newsies!

Newsies Backdrops

Stop the presses! This Disney film turned Tony-winning Broadway hit inspires everyone to fight for what's right and seize the day. Set in New York City at the turn of the century, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged "newsies," who dreams only of a better life, far from the hardship of the streets. But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.
