Cast members from the North American Tour of “Newsies” taught guests dance sequences inspired by the musical’s production number “Seize the Day” at the Downtown Disney District yesterday – all part of the “Get Up and Go” wellness program.
The program is part of the national tour of “Newsies,” in which cast members visit select schools and after-school programs to promote healthy lifestyles through dance, exercise and a well-balanced diet. The cast also share personal stories about how staying active helped them achieve their goals.
The Disneyland Resort invited community groups including the Anaheim Ballet, the Wooden Floor and several local high schools to participate. The national tour of “Newsies” will run at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles from March 24 – April 19.
