Footloose!

April 18, 2010

Footloose at the Midvale Main Street Theatre

The first week of the Midvale Main Street Theatre musical performances of Footloose not only exceeded our expectations, the audience responses have been magnificent as well.

This production has a terrific mix of  actors in their debut performances from our own community as well as many who have polished their abilities over years of live theatre performing. Regardless of the amount of time they have previously spent on stage, the performances have been delightful.

It is truly a joyful experience to see such dedication to live musical theatre performances. Footloose is fun in the fact that it has small-town atmosphere, yet an entire High School worth of students. The roles, themselves, are energetic and relatable to issues we all deal with periodically in our lives. There are a lot of roles and those who perhaps did not have a lead role this time around, feel happy for yourselves! You are a part of a major team effort. Without you, the show would not be the same. Every one of you continues to be an important addition to our Footloose cast and we look forward to this next week of performances with great expectations, excitement, and gratitude!

A slideshow featuring members of the cast of Footloose during rehearsals may be seen here. Footloose!

We do still have tickets available online for our performances next week and hope you all will join us!

FOOTLOOSE AUDITIONS!

FOOTLOOSE AUDITIONS!

Footloose is the story of Ren, a young man who moves to a small, religious town with his mother after his father abandons them. This town has regulations that are so strict that even rock ‘n roll music and dancing are banned. Ren takes on the task of convincing the Reverend Moore to let the town High School Students dance again. This is a fun production with upbeat music and high-energy dancing!

There are many roles in Footloose for ages 13 and up (including several adult roles). We are looking for enthusiastic, high-energy performers with a desire to bring that enthusiasm alive on stage. If you are a dancer, singer, actor, we would love to see what you have to offer!

Auditions for Footloose are at the Midvale Main Street Theatre on Wednesday, January 20, 2009 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Please be prepared with a Monologue (or reading), a song of your choice (you may do this with a CD or A’ Capella), and to dance!

Open auditions for ages 13 and up are Wednesday, January 20, 2010 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

We look forward to seeing you there!
