NEWSIES Releases Photo Booth App
Disney's Newsies has released its first social media app for iPhone and Android devices. The Newsies Photo Booth app is available for free download via the iTunes and Google Play stores. To download the app, visit www.newsiesthemusical.com/photobooth.
Users create their own photos with cast members by taking a new photo of themselves or choosing one from their photo library. Instantly, fans can add up to three cast members to the existing picture. The 16 unique poses can be quickly and easily altered according to brightness, scale and orientation for each individual photo. Once completed, the photo can be shared with friends via Facebook, Twitter or email.
Newsies features a Tony Award-winning 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 Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work.
The Broadway company of Newsies also features Corey Cott as Jack Kelly, John Dossett 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.
