12 Tuesday June 28 2016 Lincoln High kicks off Footloose production LINCOLN HIGH School students premiered their Footloose production last night. Many months of rehearsals and perfecting dance moves paid off when the students kicked off the three-night performance of the hit 1984 movie last night. The story centres around a teenager entering a small town and shaking things up when he finds out there are strict rules around music and dancing and tries to change the rules in the community. Staff and students started planning for the performance mid last year, hosting auditions in October and working since then to make the show perfect by opening night. Biennially the high school puts on a production, this year the cast and crew of around 100 have been spending many after school hours and lunch times practising. Lincoln High’s drama head of department Sandra McLean said the students have had a lot to balance. “The students have done really well, considering they have had school work, sports and other commitments as well as the production. I think we have battled every cold and bug under the sun,” Mrs McLean said. GOSSIP: Maise Wood playing Ariel, Ella Waswo playing Wendy Jo, Nilani Ekanayake playing Urleen and Kate Scott playing Rusty discuss what’s going on in the town. ​ SCHOOL Students have been embracing the 80s look and they have ‘had a ball’ putting the show together.

Anyone aged between 12 and 24 can be nominated in the eight categories.
