The Cathedral School celebrated its Foundation Day on the 24th July, with the highlight being a spectacular performance of ‘Footloose’. The musical was originally planned as a full-scale performance to be held at the Civic Theatre in Townsville, but due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions – had to be temporarily put on ice.

With restrictions eased the resilient, hard-working staff and students managed to revive the show – albeit as a shortened 20-minute performance, at the school’s ‘Rock Centre’ – incorporating a live school band, awe-inspiring lighting and sound, and a live-stream of the event to those who couldn’t attend.

The show was performed three times during the day to allow the Junior School, Middle School and Senior School to view it in person whilst maintaining the required social distancing between seats. Everyone involved appreciated the glimpse of normality being re-introduced back into the school community and the rare opportunity to ‘cut loose’ for another magical Foundation Day.

So lose your blues and kick off your Sunday shoes, here it is… ‘Footloose’.
