You Know You’re A Fansie If…

We love Newsies for a million reasons- the fun music, incredible dancing, and adorable cast, just to name a few. Thanks to these reasons and more, Newsies has developed quite a bit of a fanbase, generally comprised of teen guys and gals who call themselves “Fansies.” Not sure if you fit the bill? Never fear. We’ve compiled a handy list of warning signs of Fansie-hood:

  • You know you’re a Fansie if you collect Newsies Trading Cards. Bonus points if you have a special binder to keep them in.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if you’ve ever cried when a cast member left the show. And don’t even try to pretend you didn’t cry when Ryan Steele left.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if your Newsies obsession is rubbing off on your family. Mine certainly is, as evidenced by my dad’s Newsies baseball cap and my mom’s agreement that Adam Kaplan is adorable.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if you’ve stood in line at the stage door under excruciating weather conditions just to get your Playbill signed.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if you had an awful haircut when you stagedoored, but you don’t hesitate to show people the pictures anyway since the awesomeness of meeting the cast outweighs the horribleness of your hair. Okay, so maybe this one is a little more from personal experience than anything.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if your Tumblr url has the words “Ben Fankhauser” in it.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if you know that “Benonce” isn’t married to JayZ.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if you don’t think Corey Cott’s pumpkin/Obama mask is that weird.
  • You know you’re a Fansie if you’ve watched the “Poor Guy’s Head Is Spinning 8,000 Times” video in its entirety.

So there’s a list of some identifying factors of a Fansie. If you fit any of the above, watch out- Fansiedom has crept upon you.
