Anderson High School Theatre presents
Footloose, The Musical
Directed by Eric Porter
Choreographed by Wendy Pratt
Technical Director Wendy Pratt
Footloose is based on the 1998 Broadway Tony-Award-nominated musical rendition of the 1984 film with the same name. Footloose is a story about peaceful life in the small town of Beaumont until a young city boy, Ren, from Chicago arrives and breaks every taboo. Ren brings dance back to the heart of a town held back by the memory of a tragedy. The music includes many of the original hits of the ‘80s that made the film so popular, including the title song “Footloose”, “Let’s Hear It For the Boy”, “Holding on for a Hero”, and “I’m Free” among others. Special guest actor Tyler Jones is returning to his alma mater to star in the role of the Reverend Shaw Moore.
