Cody Musical Theatre Company

25th-28th September 2019

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results.

Footloose is the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago. He and his mother move to the small town of Bomont after his father abandons them. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Shaw Moore. The Reverend has convinced the town to outlaw dancing, which Ren finds unbelievable. With the help of Ariel (the Reverend’s daughter) and Willard (a country hick who becomes his best friend), Ren convinces the Reverend to let the teenagers dance, and in the process helps the town to heal from a tragedy that affected them all.

Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, and guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
