Arts & Culture
Community School of Davidson and Mooresville Community Children’s Theatre have forged a unique collaboration that will bring the hit musical FOOTLOOSE, based on the iconic movie of the same name, to venues in both Davidson and Mooresville this November.
The production, directed by Melissa Ohlman-Roberge with choreography by Emily Hunter, will run at Community School of Davidson’s ArtSpace Theater November 13-16. The troupe will then pack up the sets, costumes and props and take them to the Joe V. Knox auditorium at Mooresville’s Charles Mack Citizen Center for performances November 21-24.
Over 30 students from as far south as Charlotte and as far north as Statesville have been hard at work since mid-September. Performances will feature a live band led by John Smith. When asked why the organizations chose to partner, Gina Duckworth, MCCT Board Chair commented: “The entire MCCT board was thrilled with the idea of a collaboration with CSD! One of our goals is to team up with local schools and help promote the performing arts. Footloose seemed like the perfect project! This gives the teens an opportunity to perform their show in two different venues and play to different crowds, a challenge most have yet to experience.”
In designing the production, Ohlman-Roberge has partnered with Technical Director Brandon Kincaid to execute a modular set that can easily be taken apart and restored. “It’s a short turn-over,” said Kincaid. “The spaces are a similar size, but we’ve had to be very strategic to allow ourselves enough time to move the set from Davidson and open less than a week later in Mooresville!”
Tickets for both legs of the run are available online:
www.csdspartans.seatyourself.biz for Davidson and www.mooresvillechildrenstheatre.seatyourself.biz for Mooresville. Remaining seats will be sold at the door. The production contains mild language and is appropriate for grades 6+. For group rates and additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
