Footloose is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd
A Pitlochry Festival Theatre and New Wolsey Theatre Production
Revisit the ‘80s with Footloose the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago, who moves with his mother, from Chicago to a small farming town, after his father abandons them. Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school, but what he isn’t prepared for is a ban on dancing by the town preacher, Revered Shaw Moore
With the help of Ariel, the Reverend’s rebellious daughter, and Willard, a local lad 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 is essentially a love story. Love between Ariel and Ren, the complicated love between parents and children, and the spiritual love between the religious leader of Bomont and his flock of congregants.
This award-winning musical features the songs Footloose by Kenny Loggins and Let’s Hear It for the Boy by Tom Snow and Dean Pitchford.
A co-production between Pitlochry Festival Theatre and the New Wolsey Theatre, the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top 40 score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates youth, love and life.
