Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford, one of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the intense local rules, 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 story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man yearning for the father who walked out on him.
The music includes the Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and is augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical. FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people and guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
