FOOTLOOSE, based on the hit 1984 film, tells the story of Ren, as he moves from the big city of Chicago to small town U.S.A. Unprepared for religious local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local pastor, Ren sets out to bring forgotten joy to his new friends. Audiences will rock to the Oscar and Tony-nominated musical score and soundtrack that reached number one on the Billboard charts with hits such as “Let’s Hear It For The Boy,” “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out For A Hero,” and “Footloose.”
