ARE you ready to cut loose? Footloose, that is. Community theatre group MLOC Productions are staging a musical play based on Footloose, the 1984 musical drama movie starring Kevin Bacon. The musical pits rebellious high school students against repressive parents and “liberal” big cities against “conservative” small towns backed by a 15 million albums selling soundtrack including the titular hit song by Kenny Loggins. Director and choreographer Leah Osburn enjoyed bringing Footloose to life on stage. “Having loved the movie so much in my youth I wanted to keep true to the storyline and the message the show tells about teen rebellion and grief,” she said. “Sometimes this was challenging as a choreographer as I just wanted to focus on the music with dance. I’m very happy with the balance we have found and the cast’s energetic portrayal of the story.” n Performances of Footloose the Musical are at Shirley Burke Theatre, 64 Parkers Rd, Parkdale on Thursday 25 May, 8pm; Friday 26 May, 8pm; Saturday 27 May, 2pm. An 8pm Saturday show is sold out. See mloc.org.au/footloose or call the MLOC booking office on 9551 7514 for tickets.
Youths steal clothing A GROUP of Caucasian youths stole a jacket and gloves valued at $830 from the Kathmandu store, Southland, last week. Cheltenham police were told six youths aged 15-17 entered the store, 4pm, Thursday 18 May, and moved from rack to rack inspecting clothing. Suspicious staff then noticed that a pair of $80 gloves was missing, and watched as one of the youths took a $750 jacket off a rack. They saw him removing a tag and causing a hole in the jacket. The youths left the store when security arrived. One was seen taking the jacket from under his coat, and running off with the rest of the group. An alarm was activated by hidden soft tags inside the jacket. Police arrived but could not find the youths.
