Set to the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony nominated top 40 score, FOOTLOOSE is uniquely adapted specifically for youth performers, celebrating the wisdom of listening to young people and guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the OIS stage with exhilarating results. 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. When the reverend’s daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst in the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.
