Musical at Sussex County Community College
By Laurie Gordon
NEWTON — Drama Geek Studios is proud to present its summer production of Footloose the Musical. The musical will be performed starting this weekend of July 20 and running the weekends of July 20 and 27 with six performances in total. Performances will be Friday and Saturday evening at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.
"We chose this show because it offers a large number of performers the opportunity to perform no matter what level experience they might have,” said Josh Reed of Drama Geek Studios. “Also because it's just a fun, toe-tapping musical.”
He added, “Rehearsals for our shows involve four rehearsals per week which are broken down between music, staging/blocking, acting, and dancing. We've added our own flair and style to truly make it a Drama Geek Studios production.”
Reed encourages potential actors. “To see if there are any spins to these stories, you'll just have to come see for yourself. Wink, wink.”
Drama Geek Studios is a fun, interactive learning environment centered around the performing arts.
“We firmly believe that by developing our creativity, fostering our individuality, and allowing inspiration to be pursued, we become more productive people, definitely more fun to be around, and more likely to make a difference in our world,” Reed said. “So we are offering an opportunity for young people to come to our studio, take a class or two, have some fun and get geeky with us.”
Drama Geek Studios is the in-residence community theatre at Sussex County Community College in Newton, where Footloose will be performed.

Drama Geek's motto is a quote from none other than Walt Disney: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
