The ‘Fansies’ of Disney’s Newsies took to the streets of downtown Denver on March 16 to hand out collector’s editions of a Denver Post ‘Extra’ edition that harked back to the turn of the 20th century, when newsboys hawked papers on every street corner.

The Fansies gave out show-related prizes, and those who were following along for clues on Twitter knew where to go and where to look. At each stop, one of the Fansies was hiding the show’s official stuffed bear mascot in a newsbag. Those who found a bear won tickets to the show, which opens March 23 at the Buell Theatre.

  • The mother-son team of Lisa and Daniel Judge of Maui found the Fansie with the bear at Union Square.
  • John Hunter, who recently moved to Denver from Georgia, found the Fanise with the bear outside the Goorin Brothers Hat Shop in Larimer Square.
