Logan in Footloose


Logan’s school put on another musical this year, Footloose about a small town in Oklahoma that bans dancing in the city limits and the kids fight city hall and win. It is based on actual events in Elmore City, Oklahoma in 1980. Read about it here.


Logan as a parishoner during a sermon. The beige and beige on beige look was what I had in the 80’s until I met Heather and she introduced me to color.

Logan had a small part but he worked hard at it. So did his mother from shopping at Goodwill for 1980’s era clothes (why didn’t she check my closet?) to being at almost all the rehearsals and all the performances.


He is a town council member here. He “forgot” to tuck his shirt in before going onstage. I thought Heather was going to have a coronary. She texted him to tuck his pants in before he came back out. Yeah for cell phones. Of course playing on it may have caused the problem in the first place.

The teacher that directs the kids is very demanding but has a big heart. The kids really respond. This production had kids down to sixth grade participating.


Logan had a small part and he made the most of it and gave it is all.


Those of us who are parents know what it is like when you see your kid doing something and enjoying it.


This is his air guitar technique. We hadn’t seen that before.

This is his last high school production so we’ll see what the future holds for Logan. Will he be in any more productions? If he wants to hard enough he will.


But I will worry about that later, right now I’m enjoying his joy on the stage.


It was fun!

    That must have been a wonderful performance. It looked great and so did Logan. I really admire him and all the others for getting up on stage in front of an audience. I would never be able to do it myself.

    Our kids never cease to impress us with their talents and abilities when they are doing something that they truly enjoy. You have every right to be proud of Logan.

    I can still remember experiencing stage fright by proxy when our kids were in productions. (They didn’t experience it first hand — I did it for them.) Logan is obviously having a wonderful time; I’m impressed!
