Close Out Your Summer with the Classic Musical, Footloose

Kick-off your Sunday shoes and cut loose as the explosive rock ‘n’ roll musical sensation Footloose comes to the Dock Street Theatre for the first time. Based on the 1980s Kevin Bacon runaway film that became a worldwide sensation, Footloose sizzles with the youthful rebellion and romance that every generation faces.

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.

After 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.

The score features numbers from the now-classic soundtrack, which sold 15 million copies and reached number one on the Billboard charts. Footloose will have you dancing in the aisles with such rousing numbers as “Footloose” and “Let’s Hear It For the Boy.” We can guarantee that you don’t want to miss this one!

Tickets start at $29 and are available for purchase online at charlestonstage.com.
