    Hello all,
    Would anyone be willing to share their building plans for Newsie Printing Press?
    I also need to know details of making Newspaper stacks.
    Thank you for your help,

    Good Morning,
    We did Newsies 2 years ago and had a blast. We don't necessarily have plans per se, but I can try to walk you through how we did the press and newspaper stacks. Both were easily constructed and didn't take too much time.

    Feel free to reach out if you would like to discuss.
    Jim

    Hi Melinda,

    We just produced NEWSIES in December.  We had local steel company build the 3, 15.5' tall rolling steel towers, and 2 ,11.5' tall rolling double decker balcony pieces to our specifications.  We also have a self built rolling staircase that goes to the top level of the balcony/2nd level of the towers.  These pieces reflect the Broadway set pieces.  The towers also have 6, rolling muslin screen that fill each of the 6 "boxes" of the 3 towers for projections to be used.

    We are looking to rent and/or sell these pieces.  We are in Lincoln, NE.  I believe you are in Vail, so it would be about an 8 hour, 30 minute drive if you are interested in them.  I'll try to upload some pics for you.

    Please contact me (bhenrich@lps.org) or my TD, Scott Engel (sengel@lps.org) if you are interested and we can chat further about the details.    Anyone else who is producing NEWSIES is also welcome to contact us about rental and/or purchase of these set pieces
