    Students Revive '80s Production

    Pine-Richland Middle School students took audience members back to the eighties through the production of “Footloose.”  The musical is based on the 1984 movie and follows lead character Ren and his mother’s move from Chicago to a small farming town, where Ren finds it tough to adjust to the local way of life which includes a ban on dancing.  In all, 74 students took to the stage with lively song and dance numbers.  The production was performed February 7, 8 & 9, 2019. 

    Eighth-graders Logan Kusar and Ruby McCune oversaw the production as student directors with the help of 29 student crewmembers. Ruby and Logan said the show was packed with talent.

    “We saw a lot of talent showcased,” said Logan. “The students have improved so much and are showing so much different talent than they have before.”

    Ruby says the musical was almost like a high school production, and students worked really hard to relay the eighties theme.

    “There was a lot of energy and fun,” said Ruby. “The cast was so great to work with and the excitement was so amazing that you didn't want the production to end.”
