FPAC welcomes Chaz Wolcott from SYTYCD for Disney’s Newsies

The Franklin Performing Arts Company will welcome Chaz Wolcott of So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) fame to choreograph their upcoming production of Disney’s Newsies. It had previously been announced that Broadway’s Clay Thomson would choreograph, but due to scheduling conflicts (Thomson will be joining the Original Broadway Cast of King Kong), Wolcott will be taking over.

Two days before graduating from Oklahoma City University’s prestigious Ann Lacy School of American Dance and Arts Management, Wolcott was offered the role of Mistoffelees on the National Tour of Cats. He was featured on FOX's "So You Think You Can Dance" where he jumped on Mary Murphy's Hot Tamale Train to the Academy in Season 14.

Wolcott is also featured in the live film version of the show from Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre, which was released in movie theaters as Disney's Newsies: The Broadway Musical.

As previously announced, FPAC’s production of Disney’s Newsies will star Broadway’s Christopher Rice (The Book of Mormon) as Jack Kelly. Disney’s Newsies runs October 13, 14 and 19-21 at THE BLACK BOX in Franklin, MA.
