4) FOOTLOOSE THE MUSICAL IS DANCING OUR WAY THIS MONTH! Get ready to shake your tail feathers! In one of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory to burst onto the live stage, 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, but nothing could prepare him for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her tough boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about him. The show runs July 31st-August 16th. Friday and Saturday showings are at 7:30 PM. Sunday showings are at 2:00 PM. We will be having a special Thursday showing on August 6th at 7:30 PM. Tickets are available for purchase online on our website or at our box office an hour before the show.
