Based on the 1984 movie which took the world by storm, Footloose tells the story of teenager Ren McCormack whose life is turned upside down when he and his mother move from Chicago to small-town Bomont. Things are made even more difficult when Ren learns that the town, led by Reverend Shaw, has banned dancing and rock music in a misguided bid for the safety of their teenagers. Taking matters into his own hands, Ren soon has all hell breaking loose when he sets out on a mission to get the people of Bomont back on the dancefloor!
This iconic musical will have you rockin’ out to its contagious Oscar and Tony-nominated score, including classic 80s hits, “Holding Out for a Hero”, “Almost Paradise”, “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” and of course the unforgettable title track “Footloose”.
