It’s that time of year again, the PHS musical is right around the corner! Auditions have been held, cast lists have been posted, and rehearsals are in full swing preparing for their opening performance on Feb. 19.
“I’m super proud of the students and their efforts thus far. There are tons of songs with complex music that have challenged the cast. They are step-ping up to the challenge to add high energy choreog-raphy and over the top characters from the 1980s,” said PHS choir director Kathryn Brown.
This year, the Pulaski Drama Department has selected the musical Footloose to be this year’s show. The musical follows a teenage city kid, Ren McCormack (played by Ryan Bouchard), who moves to a small town that has banned dancing due to a previous tragedy that struck the town. There, he and his allies Ariel (Giselle Rottier) and Willard (Connor Heezen) attempt to change everyone’s mind about dancing.
“Footloose is a great show with high energy that features a lot of students. We have a lot of talented students we want to showcase so this seemed like a great show for our students,” added Brown. Currently, tickets to see the show are available, and can be bought online at Pulaskihs.ludus.com for $9 each.
“Please come and see our extremely talented students as they showcase all their hard work. You won’t be disappointed!” Shows are 7 p.m. Feb. 19, 2 p.m. Feb. 20, 7 p.m. Feb. 26 and 2 p.m. Feb. 27.
