The Broadway hit Newsies opened Tuesday night at Shea's Performing Arts Center. Bright and early Wednesday morning, a handful of the stars of the touring production took their high energy act to Bennett Park Montessori School in Buffalo.

The program is called "Get Up And Go." Cast members like Chaz Wolcott who plays "Buttons" share a message about making healthy choices and to get moving. They run the students through some fancy footwork as they encourage them to embrace fitness, good nutrition, and to "seize the day."

The fourth, fifth and sixth graders enjoyed being transformed into singers and dancers for the morning. And the cast members promise that they will be all warmed up as they continue their run of Newsies at Shea's Performing Arts Center through October 4th.
