“Footloose” kicks off spring musical season

26 Feb

The spring musical season kicks off — literally — this weekend, as Webster Schroeder High School presents Footloose! in four shows this Thursday through Sunday.

You undoubtedly remember the 1984 Oscar-nominated movie musical starring Kevin Bacon.  The story follows a city teenager who moves to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned.  The new kid and his rebellious spirit shake up the town as he tried to bring music back into their drab lives…and win the girl at the same time.

And I’m sure you remember the music. (I’ll bet the title song is dancing around in your brain right now.)  The production will revisit many of the songs in the Tony-nominated top-40 score, guaranteeing a high-energy, high-stepping good time.

Footloose! will be presented Thursday, Friday and Saturday February 28-March 2 at 7:30 pm, an Sunday at 2 pm at Webster Schroeder High School, 875 Ridge Road.  Reserve seating tickets are $11, and are available at Wegmans or at the door. 

Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks about Webster Thomas’ spring musical, The Wiz, which will be presented in four performances March 21-23.  Tickets are also on sale now for that production, and are availableat Hegedorn’s, 964 Ridge Road, Webster, online at www.websterthomasplayers.com, and through the Webster Thomas Players’ ticket line at (585) 234-8248.
