FOOTLOOSE CAST. The 2024 musical cast has been announced.

The students waiting outside the door eager to be let in for auditions. Tech theater is getting all the lights and microphones ready. Backstage getting ready all of the costumes for the actors. And the theater teachers, choir and band directors and dance teachers preparing all of the scripts to be ready for the big day.

The cast list for “Footloose” was released on Friday after auditions and call back earlier in the week. The musical will take the stage in January.

“This year is going to be different,” senior Gracie Saucedo said. “We have such a talented cast which is why I am looking forward to the final product of Footloose. My role in the musical is Ariel Moore, the preacher’s daughters.”

One of the first things the cast must do is come together as a group.

“Just seeing everyone come together and use their own skills and make one big thing that we are all proud of and get to work with everyone else,” junior Ella McDonald said.

Everyone in the musical always has a specials part to play at the end of the day. And each character is very different in its own way of acting and singing.

“What I’m gonna be doing in the musical is one of the characters friends that is named Buckle, and I’m just gonna be there for moral support and to help him thru his journey,” sophomore Isaiah Higgins said.

These high school students put all of their effort, sweat and tears into this play to make it the best for the everyone in the community.

“I’m excited to perform the musical ‘Footloose’ when everything is done and ready,” sophomore Mia McGowen said.

Every year lots of students decide to audition for the play. Every year at the school there is multiple musicals that happen throughout the year.

“I’m most excited about the public performance and all the memories we are gonna make and the choreography we are gonna learn for it,” Higgins said.

There is a lot of preparing to do when you are hosting a musical.

“I’m gonna be apart of the ensemble I sadly wasn’t there for two days because I was sick but I feel like since I have a small role, I still feel like it will be a amazing part of the musical,” McDonald said.
