Following two critically acclaimed tours and a West End run, Footloose is back and better than ever with the incredible Gareth Gates (ITV’s Pop Idol, Les Misérables, Legally Blonde) returning to give a ‘faultless’ performance as loveable cowboy Willard (Manchester Evening News) and the legendary Darren Day (TV personality and star of numerous West End and National tours including Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Grease and Summer Holiday).
City boy Ren thinks life is bad enough when he’s forced to move to a rural backwater in America. But his world comes to a standstill when he arrives at Bomont to find dancing and rock music are banned. Taking matters into his own hands, soon Ren has all hell breaking loose and the whole town on its feet.
Based on the 1980s screen sensation which took the world by storm, Footloose sizzles with spirit, fun and the best in UK musical talent. With cutting edge modern choreography, you’ll enjoy classic 80s hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear It For The Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose.
