Musical Jumps from Big Screen to Liberty

Musical Jumps from Big Screen to Liberty

By Charlene Lopez, Liberty High School

As soon as the curtains opened, the music started and the 1980’s-based play Footloose opened up with its classic theme song. Energy and excitement immediately filled the Liberty Theatre.

This crowd-pleaser of a play, performed April 25-28, was well received. Throughout the performance, there was either an audience member laughing, singing along or crying with sympathy.

The singing was outstanding, especially from Ren McCormack played by senior Marlon Bulaong. The character was spunky and energetic with exquisite dance moves. He played the crowd well by getting everyone to immediately fall in love with the outcast from Chicago who wants to change the small town of Bomont.
