From Broadway to Bridport via the West End the smash hit musical Footloose bursts on to the Electric Palace stage this August.
Brimming over with optimism and fun and based on the hit film that took the world by storm, Bridport Musical Theatre Company brings you this irresistable, lung-bursting blast of 1980s pop culture Brian Penn (Everything Musical).
City boy Ren thinks his life is over when he is forced to move to small-town backwater, Bomont with his mother. But things are far worse than he could have ever imagined, as the town has banned dancing following a terrible tragedy.
The ban on dancing is the brainchild of the local preacher and when his daughter sets her sights on Ren trouble is sure to follow. It isn’t long before Ren can’t resist breaking the rules, and he’s not alone.
Footloose the musical sizzles with romance, rebellion and youthful exuberance. Its chart-topping Oscar nominated score includes the classic 80s anthems, Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear it for the Boy and, of course, the unforgettable title track Footloose.
