Cut loose to the larger than life rock ’n’ roll musical sensation Footloose!

A stellar NASDA production, Footloose is based on the 1980’s hit film that took the world by storm. The musical brings the story to another level with youth, rebellion and romance just a few feet away.

City slicker Ren thinks his life is literally over when he moves to Bomont, an American rural backwater. Things are worse than he fears, when the town bans dancing. But rules are made to be broken and it’s not long before Ren and friends begin to rebel.

Footloose will have you dancing in your seat with classic hits such as ‘Holding Out for a Hero’, ‘Almost Paradise’, ‘Let’s Hear it for the Boy’ and the unforgettable title song ‘Footloose’.
