OVERVIEW / SYNOPSIS
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. 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. When 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. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
 
Getting to Know... FOOTLOOSE is the perfect show to introduce young people through the 9th grade to the magic of live musical theatre.

LET'S HEAR IT FOR THE

REN MCCORMACK
Ren McCormack has recently traded in the big city for small-town life after his father walked out on him and his mother, Ethel. He's trying his best to put his past behind him, but his new home has problems of its own. Ren tries to encourage Bomont to loosen its strict ban on dancing and live a little. Cast a young man who can do it all - act, sing, and of course, dance. This young performer should possess the magnetism to inspire a whole community to cut loose.

CHICAGO FRIENDS (DANI, LINDSAY, STEVIE, MARTY)
Chicago Friends (Dani, Lindsay, Stevie, Marty) celebrate with Ren on his last night in town before his big move. They only appear at the top of the show, so feel free to double cast these parts with teenagers in Bomont.

ETHEL MCCORMACK
Ethel McCormack has recently arrived to Bomont with her son, Ren, stepping away from a failed marriage and trying to make a fresh start. She's got a sense of humor about her situation and a great need to make sure her son is adjusting. Find a young woman with a great singing voice who can convey a mature presence.
