STAR THEATER: Footloose the Musical a hit, all-star cast to offer additional show

Feb. 19, 2008 

This Broadway show, based on the 1984 movie tells the story of big city kid, Ren McCormack (played by Zach Grider).  When Ren and his mother (played by Patti Issacs) move from Chicago to a small farming town to live with his strict aunt and uncle (played by Wendell McGowan and Samantha Roark), Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local laws, including a ban on dancing. The ban is the brainchild of a preacher (played by Kelvin Bailey) determined to exercise the control over the town youth that he cannot command in his own home.

When the reverend's rebellious daughter, Ariel (played by McKinsey Campbell) sets her cap for Ren, her roughneck boy Chuck Cranston (played by David Emerson) friend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid.

Portraying Ren's friend Willard is Brandon Roush, lead singer of the band No Tale Lights, with members Austin Roush and Tyler Blair,  who perform the music live for the show. Barbra Harford plays the Rev. Moore's wife and Ariel's mother. Cheyenne Popplewell plays Rusty, Willard's love interest.  Other characters in the play are Katie Flanagan, Sara Heath, Anthony Edwards, Tony Windish, Brandon Roark, Montanna Popplewell, Eric Conner, Todd Wilson, Jodi Popplewell, Gary McGowan, Mary McGowan, Matthew Wyatt, Michelle Maldonado, Betty Qualls, Jane Withers, Laura Lawless, Patricia Richardson, Keli Stephens, Kobi Gakin, Zack Shutz, Mikenzie Conner, Audra Flanagan, Alisha Shepard, Jordan Pierce, Taylor Spring, Shadey Cole, McKinzie Henson, Channing Copper,  Marketta Lawless, and Shelby Maldonado

Featuring many 80's hits preformed live such as Kenny Loggins' "I'm Free (Heaven Helps the Man)" and the title track "Footloose", Sammy Hager's "The Girl Gets Around," Bonnie Tyler's "Holding On for a Hero," "Almost Paradise," "Somebody's Eyes" and the hit single "Let's Hear it for the Boy."

Under the stage direction of Gary and Mary McGowan and choreography of Marti Salle of the Dance Shoppe, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind and makes it a  must see for everyone.

Footloose will conclude with performances February on the 22nd, 23rd and the 24th. Friday and Saturday shows will begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday shows at 2 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $10 or in advance for $8. Advance tickets are available at Grider's Drug on Main St. across from the theater.
