One of the most explosive musicals  in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results.When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared fir the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he wasn’t prepared for were the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. Set to the rockin rhythm of its Oscar and Tony nominated top 40 score. Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to the young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
