MULTI-TALENTED Bremer State High School students will cut footloose next week.
The all-singing, all-dancing Footloose cast will present the school's first musical in six years.
As well as showcasing the skills of the school's talented performing artists and technology students, the musical will feature teachers in on-stage and behind the scenes roles.
Acting performing arts head of department Keri Church said the school community was excited to present Footloose.
"For many years we've presented variety nights, but with the new school and new hall we thought we'd try something different and return to musicals," Ms Church said.
"The new Footloose movie came out last year and it seemed like a good time to do a musical that was a bit different."
Ms Church said students had spent many months preparing for the show.
"It's a very dance-focused musical so it's been a challenge for some students, but everyone has perfected their routines," she said.
"Our singers have had to get used to dancing while singing, because there's so much dancing."
Ms Church said students had taken on leadership positions in the musical.
"One of our senior students will be conducting the band, including a teacher who'll be on keyboard," she said. "Students will also be acting alongside teachers, who have taken on a lot of the roles of adult characters so it seems more realistic."
The musical will open on Wednesday, August 15, with two other shows on Friday, August 17 and Saturday, August 18.
Shows will run from 7pm in the school hall.
Tickets cost $15 for adults and $10 for students and can be purchased by phoning 3810 9333 or at the door.
