Footloose

Footloose

The Dance Musical

Oct 12 to Oct 30, 2016

Dunfield Theatre Cambridge

Cut loose with the musical phenomenon that has played to packed houses in St. Jacobs, Grand Bend and Penetanguishene, and earned the adulation of theatregoers everywhere!

A young rebel moves to a small middle-American town where dance is forbidden, and encourages all the young people to defy the strict edict of the local pastor with a rock ‘n’ roll dance. In so doing, he brings healing to the heart of a town held back by the memory of a tragedy.

Anchored by memorable ‘80s anthems “Holding Out For A Hero,” “Almost Paradise,” “Let’s Hear It For The Boy,” and the self-titled track, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with warm hearts and open minds.
