This weekend, The Bryant Players will be doing a performance of Footloose, starting at 7pm on March 31st, followed by performances on April 1st at 7pm and April 2nd at 2pm! Word on the street is that you should buy your ticket in advance because it is going to be a very successful show! The cast consists of 23 students that are all diverse and involved in the Bryant culture who have all come together to create an awesome show.
For those of you who don’t know what Footloose is about, the story starts with a young boy named Ren and his mom who leave Chicago after their father walks out. They move from Chicago to life with relatives in Bomount, a town that does not allow for any fun or dancing. There, he meets a girl named Ariel. She is the preacher’s daughter and a wild child. Along the way, Ren meets all of Ariel’s friends, and they try to change the law of the town to allow for dancing, which will make Bomount a happy, fun loving place to live. Through the show, there are many laughs, a few tears, and a lot of singing and dancing!
The show is directed by Liam Rice ’17 and assistant directed by Monica Cable ’19. Along with the cast, Liam and Monica have worked so hard to put this show together and have been planning for over a year. Tickets will be available starting Monday 3/27 from 10-2 in the roto. When buying them in advance, it is only $3 for students, $5 for faculty and staff and $10 for adults!
