Union Springs High School presents "Footloose" March 14-16
(March 4, 2019) - Union Springs High School students are polishing up their act for this year’s musical production of "Footloose," which will be Thursday, March 14 and Friday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday, March 16 at 2:00 p.m. Doors to the auditorium open 30 minutes prior to the performance.
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 (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
Tickets to Union Springs' production of "Footloose" are $9.00 for adults, students, and senior citizens and will be available at the door. The ticket booth will be open 45 minutes prior to each performance and accepts cash only.
