NLL's Footloose at the Hazlitt
By Karolina Miltinyte, Year 10
Footloose is coming to New Line Learning next term and features our very own great dancers and actors! With direction from Mr Minshull and dance teachers, Mrs Histon and Mrs Chapman, the show is looking even better than the ones that have come before.
As a student starring in Footloose, I can tell you how awesome it is to be a part of this musical. The experience you have taking part in this kind of thing is amazing. After my performance in the BTEC show I realised that it doesn’t matter what part you have in the show, it’s the fun times and people around you that make the best memories in school.
Mr Minshull has been really excited about this show, as for some of the older students it will be their last performance at NLL. In a rehearsal break I asked Mr Minshull some questions about the show:
Footloose is one of my favourite musicals as it contains fantastic songs and wonderful dances. The energy Footloose generates allows the cast to really enjoy themselves on stage, bringing fun, flair and feeling to the audience.
Was it hard to pick the principals?
It is always hard to pick the cast, as we have so many wonderful performers, but we try to give the older students the main parts, just due to the fact
Footloose features students from Year 7 -13 and shows at the Hazlitt Theatre, from 1-2 May at 7pm. Tickets are £5 for concessions and £7 adults and are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
