When teenager Ren McCormack moves from Chicago to a small town, he isn’t prepared for the stifling local laws, including a ban on dancing and rock music instituted by the local preacher. As he struggles to fit in, he encourages his classmates to defy the local pastor and call for a rock’n’roll prom. With an energetic Top 40 score amplified with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of opening minds and listening to the voices of young people. A musical version of the 1984 film. Directed by Jerry Crouch with musical direction by Lynda Shuler and Choreography by Tina Pisano-Foor.
