Brandon Chaplin (Chuck) and Jasmine Howell (Ariel) rehearse for Timberline’s spring musical production of “Footloose.”

Everybody cut loose with Footloose

Student actors and musicians will perform the musical adaptation on April 7-9 and April 14-16, at the Timberline Secondary School Theatre

Cut loose and join the fun when the Timberline Musical Theatre presents Footloose next month.

Student actors and musicians will perform the musical adaptation on April 7-9 and April 14-16, at the Timberline Secondary School Theatre.

The musical was adapted from the 1984 film of the same name starring Kevin Bacon. Footloose is the story of a young man from the city living in a puritanical small town where dancing and rock ‘n’ roll are forbidden. The protagonist Ren, played by Tyler Zandvliet, is from Chicago but ends up in a small town where dancing, along with just about anything else that’s any fun, is illegal. And so he’s got to fight the local minister and plead with the town council for the high school kids’ right to throw a school dance and cut loose a little. The problem is the grown-ups.

Tickets, available at Still Water Books or at Timberline, are $15, $12 for seniors and $7 students on the Thursday performances.
