How do you put on a great summer musical? Practice! That’s exactly what the 56 teens and college students of the Trumbull Youth Association have been doing to prepare for their upcoming performances of “Footloose,” which opens on Thursday, August 2nd at Madison Middle School.
Joining the cast of "Footloose" requires a high level of commitment. The cast has dedicated four hours of every weeknight this summer, plus several Saturdays, to rehearsals. Starting on their first day of summer vacation, they have been memorizing lines, practicing new songs, perfecting vigorous dance routines, and (for some) even learning to roller skate!
With a group of Trumbull teens who have that kind of focus, and a production staff of theater veterans, “Footloose” is sure to be another hit for TYA, which is celebrating its 43rd consecutive year of providing a high-caliber theater experience for Trumbull audiences.
Come out next week, have a great time, and show your support for our Trumbull teens and college students at this wonderful community event.
Performances are at 8pm on Thursday through Saturday, (August 2nd – 4th) and at 2pm on Sunday (August 5th). Tickets are $16, and can be obtained on-line at www.trumbullyouth.org, or at the door. The Madison Middle School auditorium is air-conditioned.
