The Archbishop Carroll Theatre Society (ACTS) has begun rehearsals for its spring musical, “Footloose.” The cast list was released this week. 

“Footloose” will be the last show for the seniors, making this a bittersweet time for not only the Class of 2023 but also for the castmates the seniors are leaving behind. Among the seniors in the cast are Ryan Holmes, Ben Russell, Lindsay Milam, Blaise Watson, and Robert Bellwoar.

“I am very sad that this is my last show but extremely excited to see it all come together,” said Milam said. “I have made very strong bonds with so many people even though this is my first and last year here at Carroll. I am excited to get to perform my last show with such an amazing cast and crew!”

Milam will play the female lead, Ariel Moore, alongside Holmes, who will play Ren McCormack. 

“I am so honored and excited to have the opportunity to play Ariel Moore in my final show on the ACTS stage,” said Milam. “So far it has been the best show I’ve ever been a part of and I cannot wait for everyone to be able to see it. You won’t want to miss it!”
