Adapted from the 1984 film of the same name, Footloose is the story of a big-city teen who moves to a town that has outlawed dancing.
Uprooted from Boston and reluctantly transplanted to the small Bible belt town of Bomont, Ren McCormack finds himself in a repressed community still reeling from a devastating loss.
Shortly before he arrived in Bomont, five local teens perished in a tragic car accident following a local dance. As a result, the upstanding Reverend Shaw Moore and the local councilmen passed a strict ordinance outlawing both dancing and excessively loud music.
Convinced that the new law is hopelessly misguided, rebellious Ren puts on his dancing shoes and wins the heart of Reverend Moore's distraught daughter, Ariel, while showing his fellow classmates that it's perfectly normal to blow off a little steam with some loud music and good friends.
Launceston College's production of Footloose will be set in the current era, as opposed to their 2004 production which was set in 1984.Visit Website
