Description

Written by Dean Pitchard and Walter Bobbie

The first incarnation of Footloose was the 1984 film that tells the story of Ren McCormack, a teenager who was raised in Chicago. Ren moves to a small town where the local government has banned dancing and rock music. Ren and his classmates want to have a senior prom with music and dancing. First, though, they must figure out a way to get around the law and the Reverend Shaw Moore, who blames rock music’s influence for the death of his first child.

The film received two Academy Award nominations for Best Music/Original Song — “Footloose” and “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.”

The stage adaptation opened on Broadway in 1998 and receive four Tony Award nominations for Best Book of a Musical, Best Original Musical Score, Best Actress/Musical, and Best Choreography.
