Starcross Youth Theatre will be bursting onto the Arena stage in February with the musical version of that iconic 80’s movie, Footloose. 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, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious 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 about 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. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score, with 80’s classics such as “Holding Out For A Hero”, “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” & title song “Footloose” Starcross Youth Theatre will surely leave you wanting to “kick of your Sunday shoes & cut loose!”  With only four performances book early to ensure you don’t miss out!
