Footloose: The Musical is currently playing at the theatre until August 27. Footloose, has been described as being high-spirited and exhilarating.

Reverend Moore is tormented by the dangerous consequences of rock-and-roll in his town. He has banned dancing, but his peace is short-lived. When music-and-dance-loving Ren arrives from the big city, he rallies his fellow teens (including the Reverend’s daughter) against the oppressive rule, revitalizing the spirit of the repressed townspeople, and helping them heal from a tragedy that affected everyone.

Re-live the high-energy and open-minded fun of this hit 1984 film. Featuring a score of flashy dance tunes and a rock combo band, this Tony nominated show is undeniably entertaining. The show is recommended for those 12 years and older.

Music by Tom Snow with lyrics by Dean Pitchford.

The professional non-profit Chemainus Theatre has a year-long schedule of performances for all ages, an on-line auction of amazing art work by well-known artist Arthur Vickers, a in-theatre dining room, and accommodation arrangements with the Best Western Inn.
