Footloose! Spring 2018

Footloose Logo

CAST Academy are delighted to announce that our Spring 2018 musical will be the fabulous Footloose!

Footloose is the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago. He and his mother move to the small town of Bomont after his father abandons them. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Bomont. The Reverend has convinced the town to outlaw dancing, which Ren finds unbelievable. With the help of the Ariel (the Reverend’s daughter) and Willard (a country hick who becomes his best friend), Ren convinces the Reverend to let the teenagers dance, and in the process helps the town to heal from a tragedy that affected them all.

Our production will run at the Dearne Playhouse, Goldthorpe on the 12th, 13th and 14th April 2018.
