"Footloose" is a musical based on the 1984 movie with Kevin Bacon. The musical tells the story of a fun-loving boy from Chicago who finds himself having to move to a small, conservative town. Dancing and rock'n roll are banned in this town until this teenager opens their eyes with his zest for life. From this story we get some great dance tunes: "Footloose," "Let's Make Believe We're in Love," "Almost Paradise," and "Let's Hear It For the Boy." Mild adult language. Visit
