Why See Footloose?
Cut loose and kick off those Sunday shoes with a world premiere by Pittsburgh CLO. City born-and-bred teenager Ren McCormack moves to one-horse-town Bomont, where he discovers that dancing is against the law; talk about a severe case of culture shock. After falling for the beautiful Ariel, the daughter of the draconian preacher, Ren decides that it's time to really shakes things up.
When he and fellow rebellious teens defy authority and dare to dance, the result is a frenetic rock 'n roll musical featuring the Billboard-storming hits "Footloose," "Let's Hear It for the Boy," "Almost Paradise" and "Holding Out for a Hero."
