Footloose - Spring Musical Comedy

Stage adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie, music by Tom Snow with lyrics by Dean Pitchford

Directed by Dawne Swearingen

Based on the hit movie capturing the heart of America, this musical bursts on to the stage with a youthful spirit, dazzling dance scenes and electrifying music. Ren, a teen from Chicago, is forced to move with his mother to a small town in Texas after his father abandons the family. To his shock, dancing and rock and roll are forbidden! He and his classmates want a senior prom. It doesn’t take Ren long to shake up the status quo and soon the whole class is on their feet, sending the town into a frenzy. Footloose will have the whole audience on their feet in this joyful family musical!
