This show was awesome. We went because "Almost Paradise" was one of the songs at our wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that the singing and dancing was fabulous. I have recommended it to friends.

More Information


Based on the popular 1980s film starring Kevin Bacon, Footloose is the classic tale of teenage rebellion and spirit. When Ren McCormick and his mother move from Chicago to a small Oklahoma town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he’s not prepared for are the rigorous local laws, including a ban on dancing. The show includes the film’s pop hits, such as “Footloose,” “Almost Paradise,” and “Let’s Hear It for the Boy.”

Planning is currently under way in Hollywood for a new movie version starring Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford.
