Footloose explodes onto the stage with classic 80s anthems, including ‘Holding Out For A Hero’, ‘Almost Paradise’, ‘Let’s Hear It For The Boy’, and of course the title track, ‘Footloose’.

Life in small-town Bomont is peaceful until city boy, Ren, arrives.  Breaking every taboo, Ren brings dance back to the heart of a town held back by the memory of a tragedy.  Based on the hit 80s movie (which launched the careers of Kevin Bacon, Sarah Jessica Parker and Jon Lithgow), Footloose has become a stage musical phenomenon.

The playground came to a standstill in the run-up to Footloose opening, when the cast gave an impromptu performance of “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”.  See the playground as you’ve never seen it before, here.

The female cast of Footloose ‘flash mobbed’ assembly on Tuesday 19th November to advertise the show, after Mr Dickson asked “Where have all the good men gone?”.  You can view the flash mob here.

Shows will be from Wednesday 27th – Friday 29th November at 7:30pm.  Tickets are available now from the school office and at lunchtimes in the Crush Hall and other locations around school.

Don’t miss out!
