Footloose takes place in the small town of Bomont. In response to a tragic car wreck five years earlier, the elders of the town have outlawed dancing. Coming into conflict with that law is Ren McCormick, a teenager with troubles of his own who moves to the town from Chicago.

Based on the 1984 film, Footloose is an energetic, thoughtful show full of hit songs and fun dancing. The musical version opened on Broadway in 1998 and has been a popular show for high schools and regional groups to perform ever since.
