‘Footloose’ Is Ready To Rock CPAC Stage
Castle Performing Arts Center turns back the clock — all the way to the ’80s — with its upcoming run of Footloose, opening Friday at Castle High School.
The musical is directed by Karen Meyer, and it runs through March 29. Curtain goes up at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 3 p.m. Sundays in Ron Bright Theatre.
Based on the 1984 movie, Footloose tells the story of city boy Ren, who moves from Chicago to the small town of Bomont and finds himself less than welcomed by the grim locals, who have banned dancing and rock music. Ren resolves to change this with the help of Ariel, the preacher’s rebellious daughter.
Hawaii-born Dean Pitchford wrote both the original film screenplay and stage adaptation. Castle students Jacob Yamaguchi and Caitlyn Bright star as Ren and Ariel, alongside 43 other Oahu students. Bright also is the daughter of Michael and Jade Bright, and granddaughter of former CPAC director Ron Bright and his wife Moira.
Tickets cost $15 general and $10 for students, seniors and military. To order them, call 233-5626 or visit showtix4u.com.
