COMMENT: Horsemeat -- Unsafe for Human Consumption

COMMENT: Horsemeat -- Unsafe for Human Consumption

REVIEW: Footloose

REVIEW: Footloose

Footloose the musical graced the stage of Grand Forks Secondary School on March 7th, 8th, and 9th.

The main character of the play is a boy named Ren McCormack (played by Aaron Baker), whom I have known for a long time and had no idea he could sing so well.

The nice thing about the play was the set. The set was simple and creative. The set changes were very fast so the audience did not have to wait long. The singing and dancing was amazing, well rehearsed, and choreographed. Most of the characters were played as if they were the real thing.
