The Rye Country Day School Drama and Dance Department is proud to present Footloose, one of the most iconic movie musicals of all time. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar, Tony, and Grammy winning score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!), Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people and guiding them with an open mind Performances are on February 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Dunn Performing Arts Center.
In the past few years, a number of books and articles have put forward the theory that singing in a choir can boost mental and physical health. (For example, see this book and this article.) The members of the Festival Chorus at Rye Country Day School have experienced this for themselves, and last Sunday, performed their twentieth annual concert. This tradition has become a staple of the Rye Country Day community, and one that benefits all of us – from the singers in the choir, to the musicians in the orchestra, to the audience members who get to experience a first-rate concert performed by their friends and family.

A number of the participants in the choir took the time to reflect on what the Festival Chorus means to them. Their thoughts and a full photo gallery are on Wildcat World.
