PCPA seeks young performers for 'Newsies The Musical'


The Pacific Conservatory Theatre (PCPA) is seeking young actors to audition for its upcoming production of Disney's Newsies The Musical. Auditions for the role of Les Jacobs take place April 27 at 6 p.m. in PCPA's rehearsal studios.

PCPA is looking for a boy or girl to play Jacobs. The character is described as a confident young man willing to stand up to anyone. Jacobs looks to be about 9 to 11 years old. Actors interested must be comfortable with singing solo and taking part in dance numbers, although the choreography will be suited to whoever is cast.

Auditioning performers will be asked to sing and read from the show, which opens July 19 and closes Aug. 20. Rehearsals begin May 30 and will be 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The rehearsal schedule shifts to 6 to 11 p.m. when the show moves from Santa Maria to Solvang. A bus is provided to transport actors to and from Solvang.

The role of Jacobs will be double cast, but both actors are required to be available during the entire rehearsal and performance process. A young performer monitor will be on set to supervise the young cast members.

PCPA's rehearsal studios are located at 900 E. Stowell, Santa Maria. To request the audition material for the Jacobs role, email More info:
