SHS Students Mark the 80’s in Spring Musical of “Footloose”

AMHERST – The cast and crew of Souhegan High School’s Spring production of “Footloose” are bringing back the 80’s, with the 1984 iconic movie starring Kevin Bacon as their guide. “We have an incredibly talented group of students on the stage, led by seniors Rebecca Hall and Liam Conway playing Ariel and Ren. The 1998 Broadway musical has a few new songs and some slightly altered scenes, making the show appropriate for audiences of most ages, but fans of Ren McCormack and his struggle to fit in won’t be disappointed,” says director Jennifer Stover. “Tim Johnson, who plays Reverend Shaw Moore, finds just the right intensity for Shaw’s over-protective inclinations toward the younger members of his congregation, while his wife Vi encourages him to allow his own daughter to grow up. Katie Giannakopoulos, as Vi Moore, also has a thought-provoking moment with Ethel McCormack, played by Abigail Powers, and Ariel in the new song “Learning to Be Silent”, which is a commentary on women finding their voice.”

“We are trying a new publicity approach, utilizing the talents and opportunities offered within our school system,” Jennifer noted. “The women in the show sing “Holding Out for a Hero” and music teacher Kim Whitehead included the number in the Pops Concert in February. We have The Claw, a student news medium featuring video reporting, doing weekly interviews with cast members and we have a new playbill format that is a project being worked on by Senior Ryan Towle, under the mentorship of Computer Science teacher John Ranta. We are actively seeking to intertwine the Theater Department with other learning experiences and departments in the school.”

The directing team also includes Music Director Kim Whitehead, Choreographer Souhegan Junior Cayley Barry, Assistant Director Denise Jacobs and Technical Director Stan St. Onge, with support of many students and parents. PLEASE join them on March 23, 24 and 25 at 7:30 or Saturday March 25 at 2:30. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students and seniors, and can be purchased at The Black Forest, Moulton’s, the Homestead, and the SHS Welcome Center with cash or check, or at the SHS School Store with credit card. Thank you for supporting the Arts at Souhegan HS.
