While some of those went home dancing in the streets, others were rather more flat-footed in their response to Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie’s adaptation of the high-energy 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon and Lori Singer.
Directed and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Karen Bruce, Footloose tells the tale of dance-mad city boy Ren who moves to Bomont, a rural backwater in America where dancing is banned, but eventually gets the entire town up on its feet. Featuring hit songs from the original movie soundtrack, such as “Let’s Hear It for the Boy”, “Holding out for a Hero” and the title track “Footloose”, the show stars former World Champion Latin American dancer Derek Hough as Ren, with Lorna Want, Cheryl Baker, Stephen McGann and Johnny Shentall in the cast.
