Pennsbury High School and musical director Matt South proudly present the musical, Footloose. There will be three performances of the show which will take place in the Pennsbury High School East Auditorium.

This production of Footloose features Nic Fallacaro as Ren McCormack, a city boy who
comes to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned, Zoe Necowitz as the Reverend’s daughter, Ariel Moore, and Daniel DJ Tomalin as the Reverend Shaw Moore.

Other featured cast members include Alain Brutus as Willard Hewitt, Nicholas Carty as Chuck Cranston, Gabrielle Goldman as Rusty, Kathryn Gilbride as Vi Moore, Sydney Sobkowiak as Wendy Jo, and Olivia Schanbacher as Urleen.

The production is choreographed by Trina Shumsonk, with musical direction by vocal music teacher, Lindsey Strauss. Rounding out the music team are PHS vocal music teachers David Reimschussel and Arlo Ehly, costume design by Robin Stelly and technical direction by Terry Poulton. The show is produced by PHS Director of Choral Activities and Vocal Music Curriculum Coordinator, James Moyer.

Footloose is a classic story of overcoming grief and experiencing growth and emotional
healing, symbolically represented by dancing, as well as persevering with determination to fight for the things you love most.

Expect a high energy, enthusiastic show full of dancing and the best of 80’s anthem rock. Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

The show schedule is as followed:

  • Friday February 8th at 7:30 p.m.,
  • Saturday February 9th at 7:30 p.m.,
  • and Sunday, February 10th at 2:00 p.m.
