DBP NEWSIES Cast Learns from Original Broadway Star
Original NEWSIES Cast member Jess Leprotto visits DBP Theater Arts.
Jess Leprotto, who played Buttons in the original Newsies cast and is featured on our show poster, came to visit the Don Bosco Prep Theater Arts students During their spring musical rehearsal on Saturday March 7th. His Broadway credits include: Carousel, Hello, Dolly!, Cats (Mungojerrie), On The town, Newsies (OBC), Bye Bye Birdie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, and The Boy From Oz. The DBP cast performed two production numbers, received feedback, and participated in a discussion with Jess regarding his take on Newsies and his experience with the show. Jess gave great advice regarding the entertainment industry and encouraged every student to be fearlessly individual both on and off stage. This inspiring experience left the DBP cast & crew of Newsies ready to head into tech week and “Seize the Day” together.
