I was heart hurt to hear that NEWSIES was going to be closing at the end of August. It was without question the favorite theatrical experience of my life. I was nostalgically looking at old pictures on facebook and came across this one from the first day we moved into the theater. It captures the unbridled joy we all felt that day which managed to last my entire time doing the show. It’s also pretty remarkable when you see the sign behind us that read “12 Weeks Only!” how much of a success this show truly was.
Anonymous said: Hi! Answering the question about newsies RP there are a foe out there. There's gothalfabrain for Movie spot and a few for jack I can't remember the URL, littlelesjacobs is Les, and there are a lot of musical RP blogs like delancey-brothers igottanickel (Crutchie). There are also oc blogs. Checking out the tag newsies RP can usually show a few and there might be other URLs in the relationship pages if they have one set up.
Thank you! You get smiling Racetrack and Jack Kelly!

Not a stupid question at all! From what I understand they were limited-edition trading cards printed for the show. I got 20 of them (out of 22 apparently) for purchasing merchandise at the show (and ‘cause it was mah birfday) two years ago. The internets tell me they no longer give them out when you buy merch but there is probably a buy/trade market out there.
Disney is now doing “digital trading cards” which you can find on the disneyonbroadway tumblr under the tag “TradingCardTuesday”
