Rotherham Teachers Student Academy present ‘Footloose’ a fantastic fun-filled musical based on the 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon. With well-known songs Let’s Hear It for The Boy, Footloose and Holding Out For A Hero, it follows the story of Ren McCormack, the Chicago kid who moves to provincial Bomont with his mother when his father deserts them.
Bomont is ruled by Reverend Moore who feels that “rock and roll” is evil and bans dancing, after the death of his son in a car accident while returning from a dance. With Ren’s reliance on dance as an outlet for his pain, he sets out to change the town’s opinion with the support of the local kids, but the Reverend is determined to do anything to stop them. The musical follows Ren’s personal journey, dealing with loss, with love, and with growing up along the way.
Come and “kick off your Sunday shoes” with Rotherham Teachers Student Academy, you simply won’t be able to sit still.
