‘Foot­loose’ Is Ready To Rock CPAC Stage

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

Cas­tle Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter turns back the clock — all the way to the ’80s — with its up­com­ing run of Foot­loose, open­ing Fri­day at Cas­tle High School.

The mu­si­cal is di­rected by Karen Meyer, and it runs through March 29. Cur­tain goes up at 7:30 p. m. Fri­days and Satur­days, and 3 p. m. Sun­days in Ron Bright Theatre.

Based on the 1984 movie, Foot­loose tells the story of city boy Ren, who moves from Chicago to the small town of Bomont and finds him­self less than wel­comed by the grim lo­cals, who have banned danc­ing and rock mu­sic. Ren re­solves to change this with the help of Ariel, the preacher’s re­bel­lious daugh­ter.

Hawaii- born Dean Pitch­ford wrote both the orig­i­nal film screen­play and stage adap­ta­tion. Cas­tle stu­dents Ja­cob Ya­m­aguchi and Cait­lyn Bright star as Ren and Ariel, along­side 43 other Oahu stu­dents. Bright also is the daugh­ter of Michael and Jade Bright, and grand­daugh­ter of for­mer CPAC direc­tor Ron Bright and his wife Moira.

Tick­ets cost $15 gen­eral and $10 for stu­dents, se­niors and mil­i­tary. To or­der them, call 233-5626 or visit showtix4u.com.
