WARRICK COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) – As students prepare for the 23rd summer musical with Warrick County Schools, one actress is preparing for her 31st production.

Alyssa Chaffee is a sophomore at Signature School. She started theatre when she was just six years old.

Chaffee has performed with several different studios.

“Newsies” will be her first production with Warrick County Schools.

“It is interesting to look at how different they do things because there are a lot of differences. I mean there’s differences in the way they run rehearsals, the way they do the shows, the way they run pretty much everything.”

Chaffee says her dream is to move to New York once she finishes school and pursue a theatre career for as long as she can.

“Newsies” runs Thursday through Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
