APSU Department of Theatre and Dance to present “Footloose: The Musical”

The musical—directed by Dr. Christopher Bailey, APSU assistant professor of musical theatre, and choreographed by Margaret Rennerfeldt, associate professor of dance—runs from Wednesday, April 20th, through Saturday, April 23rd, with performances beginning at 7:30pm each night.

A special matinee performance will take place at 2:00pm on Sunday, April 24th.

Adapted for the stage by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie, and based on Pitchford’s original screenplay, “Footloose” offers an explosive musical experience perfectly suited for the live stage. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing, instituted by a local preacher determined to control the town’s youth.

Tickets for “Footloose” are $10.00 for students/military/seniors and $15.00 for adults.
