SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted.

7 p.m. San Clemente High Drama students will perform Footloose outdoors and under the stars at the school’s Upper Campus this one final weekend—Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Footloose, a 1998 Broadway musical based on the original film of 1984, tells the story of Ren McCormack, a teenager from Chicago, who moves to Bomont, a small farming town, after his father abandons him. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Rev. Shaw Moore, who has convinced the town to outlaw dancing. With the help of the reverend’s daughter, Ariel, and his new best friend, Willard, Ren tries to convince Rev. Moore to let the teenagers dance, and in the process helps the town heal from a tragedy that affected them all. You won’t want to miss this show that includes such hits as “Footloose,” “Holding Out for a Hero,” and “Let’s Hear it for the Boy”—all of which are likely to make you want to sing and dance. General admission for adults is $20, or $15 for students, seniors and military personnel. Bring a low beach chair and blankets. There is limited seating for high camp chairs. Find tickets at schsdrama.com. SCHS Upper Campus, 189 Avenida La Cuesta, San Clemente.
