2014 KHS Musical
‘Crazy For You’
Rehearsals are officially underway for the Kings High School spring musical, “Crazy For You”. This classic broadway hit is full of romance, comedy, and tap dancing- a feat that KHS hasn’t attempted since 2009 with “Anything Goes”.
“The thing that makes learning to tap dance so difficult compared to other dance forms is the fact that it is audible. So the performer not only has to be a dancer, but a musician as well,” said choreographer Amy Burgess.
KHS sophomore Grant Abbott said, “I was a little nervous when they announced that the show had a lot of tap! I had never tapped in my life.”
As the male lead, a large amount of tap dancing is required of Abbott, so he has been taking private lessons since the show was first announced.
“My feet hurt always,” he said. “There is a fair amount of stress being a lead as an underclassman and having to live up to the performances of people like Zack Middleton and Hunter Doebereiner.” Read more of this post
