The cast of Newsies, The Tony® Award winning new American musical, led by Corey Cott as Jack Kelly, will perform the show-stopping number "Seize the Day" in-studio on the Tuesday, November 13 (8:00PM-9:00PM) episode of "Dancing with the Stars: All Stars" on the ABC Television Network.

Since bursting onto Broadway last spring, Newsies set and then broke five Nederlander Theatre house records on its way to becoming the best selling new musical of the spring. The show received 23 major theatrical nominations – including eight Tony Award nods – and won Tony, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Score and Choreography. One of Broadway's highest profile hits, it has been featured nationally on "The View," "Good Morning America," "Nightline," "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade," and "The 2012 Tony Awards."

The performance by Newsies will mark the third time "Dancing with the Stars" has hosted a Disney on Broadway musical. In 2009, the cast of The Lion King performed "Circle of Life," the largest act ever to take to the "Dancing with the Stars" stage. One year later, cast of Mary Poppins performed "Step in Time" on a special 200th episode.

Newsies features a score with music by eight-time Academy Award® winner Alan Menken and lyrics by Jack Feldman, with a book by four-time Tony® Award winner Harvey Fierstein. Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, Newsies is directed by Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli.

The Broadway company of Newsies also features Corey Cott as Jack Kelly, Ron Raines as Joseph Pulitzer, Kara Lindsay as Katherine Plumber, LaVon Fisher-Wilson as Medda Larkin, Ben Fankhauser as Davey, Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Crutchie, and Nicholas Lampiasi, and Jake Lucas alternating the role of Les.
