K-Staters contribute to Greater Kansas City production of 'Newsies'
Noah Lindquist and Kelly Urschel, both K-State senior musical theatre students, star in the Coterie Theatre and The White Theatre at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City's co-production of Disney's "Newsies." The performance runs Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays through July 29.
Jerry Jay Cranford, K-State theatre professor, is the show's director and choreographer. Cranford brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the project, with acting, dancing, choreography and directing credits from Kansas City to New York City.
Lindquist is a student of Reginald Pittman, professor of music, director of opera and head of K-State's voice division; and Urschel is a student of Janie Brokenicky, instructor of voice and music theory.
This show features a cast of all-local professional and nonprofessional adult and youth actors, and will be performed live on stage at The White Theatre at "The J," 5801 W. 115th St., in Overland Park.
