KRT kicks off summer production of “Footloose”
At press night on Friday, July 8, for the summer production of “Footloose, The Musical”, Shirley Merrill, general manager of Kincaid Regional Theater (KRT), stated unequivocally, “Baring the total collapse of KRT, we are here to stay in Pendleton County.” That is great news for the community. And, speaking of great news, KRT’s production of “Footloose, The Musical”, directed by Joe Bertucci, is spectacular. The summer show, which runs from July 9-31, was originally a 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon. In 1998, it was adapted for stage. And speaking of the stage, the arrangement of the theater, the seating and the sets, are quite original this year, a genuinely refreshing set design by New York University graduate Tyler Gabbard.
