~ THE COMMUNITY IS INVITED! ~

Vocal music teacher and high school musical director, Matt South, invites the Pennsbury community to “Cut loose at Pennsbury High School as the students of PHS will present the musical, FOOTLOOSE, for three performances early next month.” The lively show will be presented in the Pennsbury High School East Auditorium, 705 Hood Blvd., Fairless Hills, on Friday and Saturday, February 8th-9th at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, February 10th at 2:00pm.

This production of FOOTLOOSE features Nic Fallacaro as Ren McCormack, a city boy who comes to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned, Zoe Necowitz as the Reverend’s daughter, Ariel Moore, and Daniel DJ Tomalin as the Reverend Shaw Moore.

Other featured cast members include Alain Brutus as Willard Hewitt, Nicholas Carty as Chuck Cranston, Gabrielle Goldman as Rusty, Kathryn Gilbride as Vi Moore, Sydney Sobkowiak as Wendy Jo, and Olivia Schanbacher as Urleen. The production is choreographed by Trina Shumsonk, with musical direction by vocal music teacher, Lindsey Strauss. Rounding out the music team are PHS vocal music teachers David Reimschussel and Arlo Ehly, costume design by Robin Stelly and technical direction by Terry Poulton. The show is produced by PHS Director of Choral Activities and Vocal Music Curriculum Coordinator, James Moyer.


FOOTLOOSE is a high energy, enthusiastic show full of dancing and the best of 80’s anthem rock. With a powerhouse score and a relatable book, FOOTLOOSE is a classic story of overcoming grief and experiencing growth and emotional healing, symbolically represented by dancing, as well as persevering with determination to fight for the things you love most.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
