Through April 14, 2013 – Footloose

FootlooseWhen Chicago teenager Ren McCormack moves to the small town of Bomont he is shocked to find a gloomy place where dancing has been outlawed by the city fathers. He sets out to change the law and the minds of the town council and bring laughter and fun back to the town. His journey is the basis for one of the most exciting, vibrant, and entertaining musicals you’ll ever see. First a popular film and then a fabulous Broadway show, FOOTLOOSE is filled with high energy singing, heart-pounding rhythms, and ultimately some of Broadway’s most spectacular dancing. It is a show that will bring generations together and bring audiences to their feet in a dazzling production featuring such hit songs as “Let’s Hear it For the Boy,” “I Need a Hero” and the well known title song. You won’t be able to contain your joy after you’ve seen FOOTLOOSE.
