FOOTLOOSE : Save the Date!
Come kick off your Sunday shoes with us this spring! This super fun, upbeat musical is sure to have you dancing in your seat! 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 … 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. This is one you will not want to miss! Performances will be at 7:30 PM on 2/22, 2/23, 2/28, 3/1, 3/2, 3/4, 3/8, 3/9 at the The Valentine Theater, 839 E 900 N, American Fork, UT. $10 adults/ $8 kids.
