The Verona Area Community Theater performed its tenth high school-age show, “Newsies,” from April 25-28.

Jamal Stone of Sun Prairie High School starred as lead Jack Kelly, who led a group of New York City newsies into strike after Joseph Pulitzer (Derek Argall) decided to rise prices of newspapers at the expense of the children.

The show featured 68 high school-age students from 13 nearby high schools. The show is based off of the 1992 Disney movie “Newsies,” which later transitioned into a Broadway musical.
