COLLEGE STATION, Texas —
A&M consolidated students are dancing their way into the weekend as they bring to their stage the widely popular movie turned musical, Footloose.
The production required the effort of many, and talented students from the theater, choir, and dance departments all worked together to put on a show filled with enough 80’s music to make anyone want to sing and dance along with them.
“ I love getting to share my passion with kids and teach them things like how to sing and how to act and behave backstage, but they’re also learning real life lessons of how to be flexible, and they day before we open we’re going to say ‘oh we’re going to change your hair’ and you’re just going to live with it, you’re going to like it. So, it teaches them real life skills as well. But it’s just so awesome to see where we were a whole month ago, to where they’ve gotten now, and it’s just really special,” said Director/ Choreographer Kathryn Lys.
The musical follows Ren McCormack, a newcomer who moves to a small town where dancing and rock music are illegal. He befriends Willard and Ariel, and together they work to loosen up the conservative town. But, Ariel’s father is the highly respected Reverend in town, and he doesn’t make it easy for them.
The students are performing the show at the AMCHS auditorium January 23, 24, and 25 at 7 p.m. with a matinee performance on the 25th at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $10 online/ $15 at the door for children, students, senior citizens, and the military. They are $13 online/ $15 at the door for adults.
