Footloose in Port Neches

I had the privilege of attending the performance of Footloose by Port Neches Groves High School last night.  These talented teenagers were able to tell a wonderful story while they sang and danced beautifully.  If you are thinking this was a group of teenagers singing to canned music, wrong.  They were accompanied by the PNG orchestra that filled the auditorium with sound.

These young people are destined to be stars.  Maybe not in theater, but people with this much talent are successful at whatever they endeavor to accomplish in life.  We are blessed to have this talent in our community.

Together these gifted teenagers told the story of a young man from Chicago who moved to Beaumont, a closed-minded, conservative town with a dictatorial pastor.  After a tragic accident four years ago, the pastor convinced the town council to outlaw dancing.  The new teenager in town determines to change the ruling. 

You won't find better entertainment this side of Houston.  You won't find a better amateur performance anywhere.  The group will perform tonight and Saturday night at 7:30.  Tickets are $5:00 and can be purchased at the door.  Refreshments are available for your entertainment enjoyment.  Please go out and support these future stars.
