Footloose at the Victoria Theatre
Dare to Defy Productions is dancing onto the stage with the four time Tony nominated favorite, Footloose.Footloose is about dance, but it’s also about the conflict between wanting to fit in and the desire to change an intolerable situation.
Teenagers have lots of problems, but Footloose high schooler Ren McCormack really feels put upon. Ren’s dad has deserted the family and he and his mom Ethel are forced to move from that toddlin’ town of Chicago all the way to the nowheresville that is Bomont, described as “a small Midwestern town.”
As well as teenage angst, Footloose, is all about fun and the carefree nature of being a teen, which of course is never fully appreciated at the time.
