PRESS RELEASE 

One of the liveliest musicals to hit the silver screen will rock the live stage when the Royal Crown Players premiere the musical “Footloose” from March 18th through the 20th at Roslyn High School.

 

In “Footloose” all dancing is banned in small Texas town of Beaumont. But this is set to change when a charismatic city boy, Ren, arrives from Chicago. He rebels, organizing a dance with fellow High School friends and soon has the whole town on its feet. Based on the 1980's movie starring Kevin Bacon, this fast-paced musical features a young and energetic cast. Packed with fantastic dancing and unforgettable 80's anthems: Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let's Hear It For the Boy and of course the title track Footloose which went from gold to platinum to multi-platinum in record time.

 

Ren played by Andrew Werner finds himself at odds with the repressive atmosphere and with the town minister, the Rev. Shaw Moore (Michael Taub).  Because of an accident that killed several teens traveling home from a dance, the town has passed a law that outlaws dancing.  As Ren falls in love with the minister’s daughter Ariel (Arielle Ditkowich), Ren rallies the other teens to challenge Rev. Moore.  In the end, Ren uses quotes from the Bible to make his case and forces the minister to do some soul searching of his own.  The show ends as Beaumont gets ready for its first school dance in five years.

 

Vi Moore (Melissa Shapiro) is the minister’s wife and Christina Combs portrays Ren’s mother.

Other leading roles are: Jonathan Yehuda as “Willard,” Jonathan Zacherman as “Chuck Cranston,” Avian Haviv as “Rusty,” Lisa Goldberg as “Urleen,” and Emily Hauser as “Wendy Jo”.
