Based on the highly successful 1984 film, Footloose deals with teenage rebellion and the struggle to overcome well-intentioned but misguided oppression, juxtaposed with the theme of coming to terms with loss -- a boy's loss of his father and a man's loss of his son. The play incorporates many of the hit songs from the movie (such as "Almost Paradise," "Footloose," "Holding Out for a Hero," "Free," and "Let's Hear It for the Boy") and, of course, electric, energetic dancing.

    The show was great I would love to see it again.The finale rocked and there were a few people I knew I'd like to shout out to later, but everyone rocked

    It is great working with this cast and crew of great people. They took me in right away even though I'm a newcomer at the Playhouse and I live two hours away in the small town of Falls City and I just want to thank them for doing that. And by the way props to Kyle hehehe.

    WOW! I'm not a playhouse regular, nor have I ever had an interest, but I'll be back for a second performance of Footloose. I'm still tapping my feet and singing some of the songs!

    The cast was wonderful and full of energy! Keep up the great work with this show and each of your futures!
