Why See Footloose?
everybody cut loose!
When Ren moves from the big city to a small town, he is shocked to discover that the town's Reverend has banned dancing and rock music. Ren becomes both a rebel and a hero when he attempts to loosen up the town's hard rules.
Adapted by Dean Pitchford from his own Oscar-winning screenplay, this version hews close to the 1984 movie. So get your sneakers on and start scoping out abandoned factories to practice your angry dancing - Footloose is on the way!
The 80's-tastic show follows Ren McCormack, a big city teen forced to move to the town of Bomont, a place where rock music and dancing are deemed too sinful for its youth and is therefore banned. With senior prom just around the corner, Ren and a host of the town's misfits including love interest Ariel, the daughter of the very reverend who enforces the ban, set out to abolish the outdated rule so that they can lift the repression and dance till they drop.
