Footloose: The Finale
I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to write a final post. It was just hard figuring out what to say. Four years of the Footlight players, I’ve realized has become pretty much my life. You spend so much time during it, it’s easy to get lost in the process. It’s hard work, especially hell week. The week after the musical is … almost like you’re in a daze. It’s kind of like, “what? I don’t have to be here till ten pm anymore?”.
The final show was amazing. There were quite a few shenanigans (many inspired by me, haha) – my favorite had to be when the four girls came out with furry boas during Holding Out for a Hero. Hilarious. Its kind of a tradition at HHS to pull pranks on the last night. Also a tradition is to sign the wall:
Everyone is always emotional afterward, because it’s a summary of your high school career. I know I’m not alone when I say that I mark my high school years by the shows we’ve done. Otherwise, they’d all the same to me! I know the senior class will remember how much hard work our directors put into it, and Footloose, as well as all the other shows, will hold a very special place in our hearts.
However, HHS theatre isn’t over for me. I’ve been directing RABBIT HOLE by David Lindsay Abaire. It’s this weekend, April 30th & May 1st at 7 PM, at HHS. Tickets are $5 for students/seniors and $10 for adults. It’s a GREAT show, and we’ve all put tons of work into it. I’d really appreciate if you came to see it!
