Footloose, by Dean Pitchford. Music by Tom Snow, Kenny Loggins, Sammy Haggar & others

Sunday, August 21, 2005
0.0
I'd have to wholeheartedly agree with greatbigstuff. The show felt rushed and thrown together, and quite honestly, most high school productions have a more professional air about them. The leads all had trouble with their songs, either in range or rhythm, Rusty in particular was almost painfully offkey at points in her song. The dances were too difficult for these dancers, and try as they might, they could not pull them off. Ariel and Ren seemed to be cast primarily on appearances, as their acting and singing certainly were not taken into consideration. The adults were fine, most seemed to have a firm grasp on the role that their younger colleagues lacked. All in all, there is talent to be found there, especially within the ensemble, but odd casting choices, insufficient dance rehersals, and lack of direction made this show a very long two hours to sit through.
