William Allen Middle School's Theater Program Presents Disney's NEWSIES

NEWSIES is set in New York city at the turn of the twentieth century.       

February 21, 22, 23, at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday February, 24 at 2:30 p.m. 

Set in New York City at the turn of the twentieth century, NEWSIES is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teen aged “newsies” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets.

But when publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right. With its catchy music and show-stopping choreography, NEWSIES is based on the real-life Newsboys’ Strike of 1899.  The strike was the result of the newspaper publishers refusing to lower the price of the papers.  Newsies were not willing to pay more for their papers to make up for the lack of headlines. 

During the last week in February, 82 middle school students at the William Allen Middle School (WAMS) will perform the well beloved musical  NEWSIES.  When you want to see a production at a theater, you close your eyes, sit back and immerse your entire body in the story and experience what is happening on stage in a fantasy world.   

The newsies strike of 1899 was a turning point in history, not only for the newspaper industry, but also for child labor laws in all industries. These are the very laws that protect our children to this day.  WAMS wants to tell this story. WAMS students were up for the challenge of telling the NEWSIES story. This show is produced with special arrangements with Music Theater International. 

Please join the entire cast, in bringing you back to the late 19th century. Enjoy tunes like Seize the Day, The World Will Know, and a show stopping Carry the Banner. 

The production has performance dates as follows:  Thursday, February 21, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., Friday, February 22, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 7:00pm., and Sunday, February 24, 2019 at 2:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12 and may be purchased at the door or on line.

Code Blue Collaborative is seeking help from local businesses

Code Blue Collaborative is a NJ non-profit 501(c)3 based in Moorestown.

We work directly with the code blue shelters in the county, as well as the one and only full-time homeless shelter in Mt Holly (Extended Hand Ministry). If you are not familiar with code blue shelters, they are county-supported shelters that open when Burlington County calls a 'code blue.' A code blue is called when the temperatures drop below 25 degrees or during snow and ice storms. Currently the county has only 4 code blue shelters, and each shelter is only allowed to provide care for 14 people. Considering the county has well over 2000 homeless people, there remains a major gap in services that Code Blue Collaborative is attempting to help fill.
We have provided new cots for these shelters (70 cots/$100 per cot) and eight new beds ($250/bed) for the Extended Hand Ministry shelter, through fundraisers and sponsorships. We also collect clothing all year; during the winter our main focus is collecting new and gently used winter attire for all ages. For the past 4 years we have also collected unwrapped holiday gifts, and this year we are proud to have sponsors for 30 families in the county!
While this has been a great success, we are still in need of more winter coats, hats, gloves and more unwrapped gifts. We are asking local businesses to consider being a part of what we do, helping provide services to more families in need. There are many ways to get your business involved, such as sponsoring a family for the holidays, or providing space in your business to serve as a drop off site. Every little bit helps!
Currently we are proud to have the support of TD Bank in Moorestown and Mount Laurel; Herron Real Estate in Moorestown; Verizon in Delran; Wing King in Moorestown; Holy Cross in Delran; Blissed Out Mama's in Moorestown; our district 7 Legislators Senator Troy Singleton, Assemblyman Herb Conaway, Assemblywoman Carol Murphy; and of course, our public schools in Moorestown who do a collection for us every year. 
We hope you will consider joining this growing list of supporters. In exchange, we are pleased to provide acknowledgement on our Facebook pages, along with your logo.
Please contact us, we'd love to work with you! 
Thanks for all you do,
For more information or to pledge your support, please contact Kristen Babcock at
