Synopsis


One of the world's most iconic musicals, Footloose is a rockin' and rollin' marathon of nostalgia, joy and youthfully exuberant dancing.


Featuring classic songs such as "Let's Hear It For The Boy," "Holding Out For A Hero." and the radio favourite "Footloose!"


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 rigorous local edicts, 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.


It falls on Ren to help the adults to realise the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.


Presented by the British Theatre Academy, Getting to Know … Footloose is an abridged version of Footloose especially designed for performance by young people.
