Newsies - Andrew Warren

Andrew Warren's setup for Newsies at the Patchogue Theatre, in Patchogue, New York.

Andrew's write-up and gear list below photos.

"Newsies! What A Fun Book To Play!

The drumset book for Newsies includes a number of different styles such as rock, swing, march-like snare drumming, and even some orchestral percussion aspects.

For this run we did not have a percussionist, so, I tasked myself with adding some of the extra percussion aspects that I felt were important. One was the muted/unmuted triangle part in the chorus of 'Watch What Happens'. This was a challenge because I already had a cymbal part and had to mesh both together. The quick change was tough, but have no fear 'The Miller Machine' is here! I had never owned one before, but that moment helped me realize it’s the best way to get the job done.

The most enjoyable part for me was getting to work with so many talented people from all over the World and meeting one of the original Broadway cast members who was the choreographer!"

Greg Landes’ setup for the Pit Stop Players’ concert at Symphony Space in New York City.
"After a week or two of rehearsals there is usually a performance or two of the show for an invited audience. Sometimes these performances can be intense if there are important people in the room, or if certain sections of the show feel under prepared. This is why it’s so important to know the score and script very well."

"The unique part of Groundhog Day was that the drummer had to play on stage, in a groundhog costume, wearing a giant groundhog head. Since I could barely see out of the head, it was impossible to read a chart (and there wasn’t a music stand), so it had to be memorized."

"If you are passionate, driven, feel you have a calling, a burning desire to play, practice, perform, and record music that you can share with the world, then choosing to be a professional musician here will make you a fulfilled and happy person. You’ll meet the most amazing people on stage, in the rehearsal room and in the audience."
