Disney’s NEWSIES - Character Breakdown
JACK KELLY The charismatic leader of the Manhattan newsies, is an oprhaned dreamer and artist who yearns to get out of the crowded streets of New York and make a better life for himself out West. Fiercely protective of his best friend, Crutchie, and strongly loyal, Jack isn’t afraid to use his voice to attain better conditions for the working kids of New York City. Though living on the streets has given him a tough-guy exterior, Jack has a big heart and can demonstrate a sweet vulnerability – especially when it comes to bantering with a certain female reporter. Must have a great pop tenor voice and sense of physicality. Gender: male Age: 16 to 20 Vocal range top: A4 Vocal range bottom: Bb2
CRUTCHIE A dedicated newsie with a bum leg that’s painful, but helps sell more papes. Though he walks with the assistance of a crutch, Crutchie doesn’t let it define him; when in a jam, Jack Kelly’s best friend relies on a goofy- sweet sense of humor and optimistic resilience. Crutchie is the heart of the resistance. Though his movement will suggest his bum leg, Crutchie should still be included in the dance numbers. Gender: any Age: 13 to 17 Vocal range top: A4 Vocal range bottom: C3
DAVEY Les’s straight-laced, bright big brother starts selling newspapers to help his family earn a living, but becomes swept up in the fervor of the strike. A leader in his own right who is learning to use his voice to uplift others, Davey is the brains of the resistance. Gender: male Age: 15 to 20 Vocal range top: A4 Vocal range bottom: D3
LES Davey’s cheeky younger brother, is inspired by the freedom of the newsies and loves their independent lifestyle. A precocious and natural newsie, Les is an intuitive salesboy and a pint-sized charmer. He should present as younger than the other newsies. Gender: male Age: 10 to 15 Vocal range top: Bb3 Vocal range bottom: Db3
NEWSIES Gender: male Age: 13 to 20
SCABS Gender: any Age: 10 to 20
SPOT CONLON The proud leader of the Brooklyn newsies, boasts an intimidating reputation and a short singing solo in “Brooklyn’s Here.” Gender: any Age: 17 to 20
KATHERINE PLUMBER An ambitious young reporter, works hard to make a name for herself as a legitimate journalist in a time when women aren’t taken seriously. Quick, funny, and resourcesful, she boldy captures the voice of a new generation rising in her coverage of the newsies’ strike. While she generally has no time for cocky, streetwise young men, she makes an exception for Jack Kelly. Though she only has a brief dance solo in “King of New York,” Katherine should have a great contemporary pop voice with a high belt – diction is key. Gender: female Age: 17 to 20 Vocal range top: F5 Vocal range bottom: A3
WIESEL Or “Weasel,” runs the distribution window for the World and knows most of the newsies by name. Assisted by the intimidating Delancey brothers, who keep order by any means necessary, Wiesel is Pulitzer’s disgruntled paper- pusher. Gender: male Age: 35 to 50
OSCAR and MORRIS DELANCEY Tough brothers who work at the distribution window for the World, take the side of the publishers in the strike and are known to use their fists to make a point. Gender: male Age: 15 to 20
JOSEPH PULITIZER A pompous businessman through and through, owns the World and is concerned solely with the bottom line. Katherine’s no-nonsense father, Pulitzer doesn’t sympathize with the strikers, but he does eventually – and grudgingly – respect Jack. Gender: male Age: 35 to 50 Vocal range top: F4 Vocal range bottom: C3
SEITZ Editor, advises Pulitzer, but ultimately admires the kids’ newspaper. Gender: any Bunsen Pulitzer’s bookkeeper, comes up with the ideas to raise the newsies’ price per paper. Gender: any Age: 35 to 50
HANNAH Pulitzer’s practical and insightful secretary. Gender: female Age: 20 to 40 NUNZIO Pulitzer’s barber. Gender: male Age: 30 to 50
SNYDER The crooked and sinister warden of The Refuge, a filthy and horrible orphanage, is concerned only with catching enough kids to keep his government checks coming. Gender: any Age: 45 to 65
MEDDA LARKIN Inspired by vaudeville performer Aida Overton Walker, this big-voiced saloon singer and star of the Bowery offers her theater as a safe haven for the newsies. An astute entertainer with great comic delivery, she’s a good friend to Jack and stands firmly behind the newsies in their fight for justice. Gender: female Age: 25 to 45 Vocal range top: E5 Vocal range bottom: F3
