"Footloose: The Musical" @ ARC Theater


American River College Theatre opens its[masked] season with the energetic musical, "Footloose." Adapted from the popular Kevin Bacon film by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie, the Broadway show features spectacular dance numbers and a score flush with 1980s pop, rock and country tunes.

Accompanied by a live orchestra, "Footloose" follows the story of a teenager who moves from Chicago to a very small town, where his mother has family. He soon discovers the town has a ban on dancing and is quickly caught up in a quest for freedom, dancing, forgiveness, and romance. According to director Sam Williams, "Footloose" celebrates "he redeeming power of love, and the wild exhilaration of dance."

The nearly 50-person cast features the best of American River College’s music, theatre and dance departments --as well as numerous actors from the community, Williams says. "All handle the intricate pop harmonies with an edgy style that will take many people happily back to the sounds of the 80s," he adds. "Younger audience members will love the “retro” look to the show, as well as exhilarating dance numbers." The show starts at 8, but let's meet early so we can buy tickets (not available for purchase online).

Cost is $15 ($12 seniors/students)
