Footloose! @ The Beck Theatre (26 – 28 Aug)

footloose_logo_2Summer Youth Project 2010

Footloose explodes onto the stage with classic 80s anthems including Holding Out For A Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear It For The Boy and of course the title track, Footloose!

When Ren and hi smother move from Chicago to small-town Bomont, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new High School.  What he isn’t prepared for are the local laws – including a ban on dancing – which are the brainchild of the local preacher bent on exercising control over the town’s youths.  When the Reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her heart on Ren, her boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation and many of the locals are eager to believe the worst about the new kid.  Breaking every taboo, Ren brings dance back to the heart of a town held back by the memory of a tragedy.

Dancing is not a crime… to miss Footloose would be!

Summer Project provides 120 local youngsters aged 9 – 19 the opportunity to work together in a professional theatre to put on a full-scale musical all under the supervision of a highly skilled production team including a professional Director, Choreographer, Musical Director and Musicians – with full staging and rehearsals in just 2 weeks!
