P2K and Schreiner Theatre and Music:  Footloose Opens Next Week!    

We’re just one week away from Opening Night of the P2K/Schreiner joint production of the feel-good musical Footloose!  The show’s three-weekend run starts on Friday, March 29.

Based on the movie of the same name, Footloose relates the story of “Ren McCormack” (Arnold Alaniz) who is transplanted from Chicago to mythical small town of Bomont, where laws have been passed to protect the local citizens from the evil influence of dancing.  There, he meets the power behind the laws, “Shaw Moore” (Rob Ward) and his rebellious daughter, “Ariel” (Olivia Merritt) and learns the tragic history behind the restrictions.  With determination and a bit of human insight, Ren works to heal Bomont’s broken heart and return joy to the lives of its citizens.
The cast features a mix of folks from campus and community, including (in addition to the above) Seabrook Jones as Shaw’s wife, “Vi,” Cindy Vennes as Ren’s mom, “Ethel,” Judy Brown as Ren’s Aunt “Lulu,” and Jared Graff as Uncle “Wes.”
Ren’s new friend “Willard” is played by last year’s “Bobby Child,” Andrew Cannon.  Samantha Ugarte plays Ariel’s best friend “Rusty,” often joined on stage by Anessa Hernandez as “Urleen,” Anna Arce as “LaVerne,” Natalie Adams as “Wendy Jo,” and Rosy Murphy as “Lucky.”  Ariel’s ne’er do well boyfriend “Chuck” is played by Adam Rich, with Teston Mack as his sidekick “Lyle.”
Other’s in this smalll town include Amanda Radkiewicz as “Eleanor,” wife to “Coach Dunbar,” played Mitch MitchellJoan Bryson as “Betty,” owner of the local burger joint, and townspeople and students including Lysette RodriguezTrinity UrquhartConstance Joy EvansAmy BakerPatti Goforth, and Keaton Mitchell as “Jeeter.”
When it ran on Broadway, Footloose earned four “Tony” Award nominations, including Best Score and Best Musical, and launched both a Broadway run and multiple national tours.  It’s bound to be a favorite for you, too!
Note: due to some minor uses of colorful language, we’re rating this one “PG”
