Book: Dean Pitchford & Walter Bobbie
Music: Tom Snow
Lyrics: Dean Pitchford

This musical is a stage adaptation of the phenomenally successful 1984 movie by the same name. The movie’s soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts, sold over 15 million copies and was nominated for an Oscar. All of your favorite songs from the movie are here from the title number to Let’s Hear It For the Boy and Almost Paradise plus some additional songs by Tom Snow and Dean Pitchford.

Footloose follows the story of a teenage boy named Ren who moves from Chicago to a small farming town. While adapting to his new surroundings and school, Ren is outraged to find that the town has several rigorous local laws including a ban on dancing and rock and roll music.

This is a plan set forth by the town’s preacher to help keep control over the young people in town. His daughter immediately falls for Ren, much to the dismay of her roughneck boyfriend, who sets out to sabotage the city boy. With the whole town against him, Ren manages to turn things around for himself and gain freedom for all of the young people in town. This musical is truly a celebration of what it means to be a young person in America and reminds us all to keep an open mind to change.
