School Musical Production “Footloose”
When we produced “Footloose” in 2015, not only was it the biggest set we’ve ever had, it was our biggest cast to date with 93 performers on stage and many more involved backstage, making it Accrington Academy’s biggest production ever! For the first time students were entirely responsible for running the backstage, lighting and sound and performed all these tasks perfectly and professionally. The cast and crew got extra motivation with a special message from Natalie Graham, an ex-student who will be performing in the professional tour of “Footloose” from January 2016! With this and the catchy 80s tunes ringing in their ears, the students stepped up and put everything they had into their performances. Over three sold-out shows including a matinee for Primary Schools, the students demonstrated their talent and energy, leaving the audience dancing in their seats and cheering for more!
