Whatchamawhozits to present ‘Newsies Jr.’ July 15 and 16


By Laura Moore | Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts

The Pagosa Springs Center of the Arts presents “Newsies Jr.” — the story of Jack Kelly and his band of rebellious newsboys who stand up against publishing giant Joseph Pulitzer with the help of his clever female comrade, Katherine Plumber, in an epic and heartfelt conflict of David versus Goliath. 

“Newsies Jr.” will be presented by the Whatchamawhozit summer kid’s theater camp, an annual camp where participating kids have the opportunity to explore the world of theater, make friends, discover creative passions and, of course, perform in front of a full audience of family members and patrons. 

The camp is taught by the talented professional cast members of our summer repertory season, which includes the “Great American Trailer Park Musical,” “Jersey Boys” and “Godspell.”

The kids have worked so hard this summer and are incredibly excited to showcase their work and talent. Each cast of actors will be performing twice (cast A on July 15 and cast B on July 16) at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased online at https://www.pagosacenter.org/ or over the phone at (970) 731-7469. Come support our talented kiddos.
