Did you join the talented local cast of the Swish of the Curtain youth theatre school as they brought their spring extravaganza Footloose the Musical live to Bournemouth’s Pavilion Theatre in February 2018? The cast are putting on six performances over three days as they bring the 80s-tastic, hit Broadway musical to town.
The production is packed with Top 40 anthems such as ‘Holding out for a Hero’, ‘Let’s Hear it for the Boy’ and, of course, the title track ‘Footloose’ in a positive tale of teenage exuberance and passion.
The show tells the true story of teenage rebel Ren McCormack, who arrives in poor bible belt town of Bomont from Chicago only to discover that dancing has been banned because it is considered to be ‘sinful’. Watch him inspire the town’s youth to challenge this rule in a heart-warming tale filled with young love, high energy and the quest for freedom of expression.
Footloose the Musical runs for more than 3 hours, and takes you on an uplifting and rousing journey of teenage struggles and unity in a divided 80s America.
