Scott Caudill Newsies role was the role of a lifetime for the young actor and amazingly enough, at the time, he was just fifteen and in eighth grade! An inspiration for other students studying drama, Caudill made a point of going back to his former middle school – Dodson Middle School – after the production and release of Newsies.
Scott Caudill Newsies Alum Visits His Former Middle School
In May of 2019, Scott Caudill paid his former middle school a visit. Dodson Middle School was preparing for the first day of their own production of Newsies when Scott dropped by.
Scott, who was one of six child dancers in the movie, watched the student perform a scene from their rendition of Newsies and once they finished their scene they sat down to talk with him about his experience making Newsies. Of particular interest to the drama students was how Scott managed to juggle school responsibilities along with his role in the Disney production that features Christian Bale and Robert Duvall.
After sharing his experiences with the Dodson Middle School drama students, Scott answered some of the student’s questions about his acting role and his experience in the Disney production.
Scott’s Is Talented in Dance
It goes without saying due to his appearance in the musical Newsies, that Scott is a talented dancer and Newsies hasn’t been his only dancing role when it comes to fame. In 1999, Scott appeared as part of the dance team who performed “Wild, Wild West with Will Smith and Dru Hill at the MTV Music Awards.
Scott would later perform once again with Will Smith at the KIIS FM Wango Tango Concert at Dodgers Stadium.
Scott’s dance experience on stage doesn’t stop there, though, he also made appearances in a number of other music videos including Santana’s “Maria, Maria” in 1999 which also featured Wyclef Jean.
Scott also featured in Billy Crawford’s “Mary Lopez” music video in 1999 and in the same year he starred in Nobody’s Angel’s music video “Wanna Dance.”
Lately though, Scott has been focused on getting back into the acting world. Although he has loved his time in the various dancing roles he has performed, and he has spent (and still spends) time making his own genre of music, Scott has an itch to get back on the big screen.
