Every June students at Buchanan School watch a musical in music class. Past musicals include The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and Alice in Wonderland.
This year I would like to show students in grades 4 and 5 an exciting musical called Newsies. The musical is based on the 1899 true story of a courageous group of scrappy newsboys who become unlikely heroes when they rally forces to fight an unscrupulous newspaper tycoon. This Disney film is rated PG, as it involves some slapstick comedy and choreography that mixes dance and fist fighting.
If you would like to preview the movie, you can also rent it from iTunes. There may also be some videos of the entire movie on YouTube (example: Newsies Part 1).
If you have read the above storyline and viewed the trailer, but do not want your child to watch Disney’s Newsies, please call Miss Queen no later than June 1st.
