Footloose the Musical [email protected]
July 8 - 31, 2021 One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. 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. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. Stage adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford Music by Tom Snow Lyrics by Dean Pitchford Additional lyrics by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman Theatre is alive and well in West Valley City! The recently reopened West Valley Performing Arts Center (formerly Harman Theatre) will present a full five-show season in 2021. With socially-distanced seating, daily sanitation of the entire theatre, hand-sanitizing stations and much more, we want to provide you a safe, live theatre experience!
