The Balor DCA Summer Musical explodes onto the stage!
When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, 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 a 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.
Based on the hit 80s movie Footloose is directed by Caroline Bell and choreographed by Thomas Slevin and Eilish Friel and features many of the cast from Grease (2016) and Hairspray (2017). It’s full of electrifying dance routines and classic anthems including Holding out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear It For The Boy, and of course, the title track Footloose.
