1) Find paradise with FOOTLOOSE THE MUSICAL this weekend! 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 now through 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 TONIGHT at 7:30 PM. Tickets are available for purchase online on our website or at our box office an hour before the show.

Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Sal Kimmer when Lee, a demented petty thief, drops in. He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and writeLee’s trashy Western tale. Auditions are August 16-17 starting at 6 PM.
