Cut 'Footloose' at McIntosh this weekend

Whatever the thermometer says this spring, it is going to be in the 80’s! At least that’s the case on stage this weekend at McIntosh High School, where the 1980’s pop musical Footloose cuts loose April 30 at 8 p.m. and May 1 at 2 and 7 p.m. The musical features such hit songs as Footloose, Holding Out For a Hero, Almost Paradise, and Let’s Hear It For The Boy! Don’t miss this great opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled evening.

The cast of McIntosh students, directed by Hannah Beth Potter and choreographed by Chandler Clark from Whitewater High School, has been working hard to bring this Broadway show to life. The show was a hit on a national tour and is based on the 1984 film that made Kevin Bacon a star.

Footloose is the story of a hip Chicago teen relocating to a very conservative farming community where rock and roll music and dancing have been outlawed. The stern minister and his wife clash head on with the young outsider.

In the McIntosh production, Michael Reep stars as Ren, the young rebel who sets the town abuzz, while Courtney Stone lights up the stage as Ariel, the minister’s spirited and troubled teenage daughter. Alex Coleman and Kathleen Newman star as the stern Reverend Moore and his compassionate wife, Vi. Jonathan Campbell plays Ren’s buddy Willard, the cowboy with two left feet, and Jenny Ampat is his bubbled-headed sweetheart, Rusty. Garrett Smithley is featured as Ariel’s dangerous boyfriend, Chuck, accompanied by an energetic cast of 26 young singers and dancers busting loose on McIntosh’s Auditorium this weekend. Go back to the 80’s with us.

Tickets are in advance are $5 and $7 and $7 and $10 respectively at the door for students and adults. Call 678-522-4147 for tickets.
