Buncrana lip-dubbers cut 'Footloose' 16.01.13

HOT on the heels of their recent lip-dub success, the talented students of Scoil Mhuire, Buncrana, are again dancing in the aisles with their new musical 'Footloose'.
The high-energy extravaganza, based on the 1984 Kevin Bacon movie, runs from January 23-25 and is expected to draw large audiences.
'Footloose' tells the story of Ren McCormack (played by Jack Shallow) and his mother Ethel (played by Anne Marie Doherty) who are forced to move from Chicago to live with Aunt Lulu (played by Rebecca McKinney) when Ren’s father deserts the family.
While Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school, he isn’t prepared for the rigorous local edicts which include a ban on dancing instituted by local preacher Reverend Shaw Moore (played by Philip Cuffe).
The musical features a strong supporting cast and chorus of 20 students who have been in rehearsals for four months. Staff members including Scoil Mhuire principal, Liam Rainey will also make fun cameo appearances.
Scoil Mhuire’s fifth musical is headed by the same production team as ‘Grease’ (2003), ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ (2005), ‘Buddy Holly’ (2007) and ‘Back to the 80s’ (2009). They include director Denise Roper, choreographer Tanya Ward and producer Lorna Barron. Curtain's up at 8pm nightly with a special matinee for the senior classes in the local primary schools on Tuesday, January 22. The ticket box office has opened in the school library and can be contacted on 93 20670 from 9am-4pm daily. Reserved tickets must be collected within two school days. Seating is limited so early booking is advised.
