The explosive film has burst onto the stage in vivid musical color! Ren and his mother move to a small town where he faces strict laws- including a ban on dancing pushed by a preacher whose rebellious daughter has her eyes on Ren. The rockin' rhythm of the Top 40 score, augmented with new songs for the stage musical, Footloose celebrates young people and the wisdom of guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
This youthful comedy will make you tap your toes!
