The River Hill High School Theatre Arts Department is busy rehearsing their March 2012 production of Footloose. RHHS Theatre Arts teacher, Pam Land, will direct and co-choreograph with RHHS dance teacher, Jenn Hennessie, RHHS Parent and Studio Dans director, Dana Keane, and student choreographers, Sophie Keane, Sam Thach, and Sarah Land. Assisting as student directors are Kim Moseman, Meera Mysore, Emily Ogorzalek and Camille Veselka. The set is designed by RHHS 07’ Theatre Arts Alum, Michael Leon. A long-time friend of RHHS Theatre Arts, Joe Blasko, will direct the construction of the set with assistance by RHHS alumni parent, George Stone. A crew of more than 25 dedicated students (lead by new student stage manager, Tim Wruck) will build the sets and props and run the show for each performance. RHHS Director of Bands, M. Joseph Fischer will prepare the student band of 13 and Helen Hayes Award winner, Doug Lawler, will conduct the band and play piano for rehearsals and during the performances. Rhonda De La Mar, RHHS math teacher, will coordinate the costumes for the cast of more than 60, with the assistance of a wonderful team of parent volunteers.
Footloose The Musical opened on Broadway in October 1998 and thrilled audiences for 709 performances. Inspired by the wildly popular 1984 movie, it’s a story of American spirit and the communication struggles between teens and parents. A carefree city kid is transplanted to a conservative rural town where rock n’ roll and dancing are forbidden. He takes on the authorities, makes all the right moves (and a few mistakes), learns a few things, and wins the heart of the girl and the hearts of the town in the end. The show features all the chart topping and toe tapping music from the film (“Almost Paradise”, “Holding Out For A Hero”, “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”, and--- “Footloose”) mixed with new material written specifically for the musical. The story and the music will appeal to all ages! By the end, everybody in the audience will want to “cut loose, footloose!”
The cast of over 60 RHHS students includes Gabby Almario (Ren McCormack), Sylvie Staines (Ariel Moore), Josh Kashkett (Willard), Emily Hostetler (Rusty), Jason Rodriguez (Rev. Moore), Juliette Rose (Mrs. Moore), Jen Warner (Vi McCormack), along with featured performances by Emily Ogorzalek, Zach Allentuck, Chris Hogenson, Camille Veselka, Hannah Floyd, Kim Gover, Shashwati Das, Sophie Keane, Kelly Gregory, Julian Berry, Brandon Norwood, David Fisher, Jack Fitzpatrick, Jen Chidekel, Morgan Benner, Brandon Dial, Kyle McKee, Chris Johnson and Sarah Land
