Song & Dance Highlight PRMS Rendition of ‘Footloose’
More Than 100 Students Prep for Musical Production
Pine-Richland Middle School students will be taking 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 will take to the stage with lively song and dance numbers.
The production will be performed at 7 p.m. on February 7, 8 & 9, 2019. Visit the musical information page.
Show is sold out!
Eighth-graders Logan Kusar and Ruby McCune are overseeing the production as student directors with the help of 29 student crewmembers. Ruby and Logan say the show is packed with talent.
“We’re seeing 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 is almost like a high school production and they are really working hard to relay the eighties theme.
“There’s a lot of energy and fun,” said Ruby. “The cast is so great and the excitement is so amazing that you won’t want the production to end.”
