About Footloose


Based on the hit 80s movie, which launched the careers of Kevin Bacon, Sarah Jessica Parker and John Lithgow, Footloose explodes onto the stage and there is just no stopping the music. 


When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, they are shocked to learn of the ban on dancing and rock music, instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. 


When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation.  The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. 


To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top 40 score, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, and the joy of expression through dance. 

All proceeds generated from the musical are designated for merit-based scholarships for Walla Walla Community College students. Gather your family and friends and join us for the special events planned as part of Footloose.
