The Northfield Arts Guild is proud to announce our next season’s Purple Door Youth Theater show will be…..Newsies Jr! Purple Door Youth Theater is an immersive educational theater experience. Elementary, middle and high school students are involved with every aspect of producing a show like performing, designing, building, marketing and ushering in a safe and supportive environment.
PDYT Founder, Rachel Haider will be directing the show, and is joined by Music Director Liz Shepley and Choreographer Jana Hirsch. “Newsies, Jr. is a dream come true for our Purple Door Youth Theater musical team,” says Haider. “It’s a show that all three of us have wanted to bring to Northfield since seeing the original film way back in the 1990s- long before it was penned for the stage. Based on a true story, this remarkable tale teaches us about standing up for what is fair and just. Through amazing song and dance, it’s a story about strength and hope. PDYT strives to help our youth celebrate and improve their lives and community, just like the Newsies do. We can’t wait to Seize the Day!”
