FootlooseThe drama team at Patrick Fogarty Catholic Secondary School can finally rest! Their hard work paid off last month with three outstanding performances of their musical “Footloose.” Working since September, the group practiced at least twice a week, as well as throughout the week in their lunch periods.

“It was such a great opportunity to learn something new, and step out of my comfort zone for a change,” said student/actress Makiya. “It was a great opportunity to make new friends too. By the end of this process I felt like I had a second family. It was amazing to connect with so many wonderful people and form lifelong friendships. We also had an amazing and generous director Mrs. Anne O’Neill,” said student/actress Kat.

With a cast and crew of over 50 people, this musical became a great production. The two lead characters, Emily A. as Ariel, and Sullivan L. as Ren did a great job leading the rest of the cast to success. No musical is complete without wonderful songs and score, and this year’s pit band did a fantastic job under the leadership of Mr. Hilts.
