Champaign Park District Youth Theatre presents Footloose
This production is family-friendly, with age-appropriate content.
When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind. This heartfelt musical brings up important topics of freedom of expression amidst generational battles and learning how to use your voice. Come participate in what is sure to be a BLAST of a show!
