The much anticipated return of American Stage in the Park is planned for the Spring of 2021. After postponing this Tampa Bay tradition earlier this year, American Stage has rescheduled the high-energy pop musical FOOTLOOSE to bring the community back together under the stars at Demens Landing. If you are a Park or Gala ticket holder, your tickets will be good for the 2021 production of “Footloose.”
Directed by Stephanie Gularte
Performed at Demens Landing Park
Get ready to kick off your Sunday shoes as the high-energy pop musical FOOTLOOSE dances into Demens Landing for American Stage in the Park’s 2020 production. Based on the explosive rock-n-roll musical movie, this Broadway hit tells the story of Ren McCormack, a big-city teen who finds himself out of place in a rural town where dancing has been outlawed. As he tries to carve out a place for himself, he ignites a revolution in the town as the younger generation rebels against the strict rules of the local preacher. Through explosive choreography and invigorating songs, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the spirit and optimism of young people fighting for change.

ABOUT AMERICAN STAGE IN THE PARK American Stage in the Park has been a celebrated Tampa Bay tradition for over thirty years. Established in 1986, American Stage in the Park was first known for producing Shakespeare to audiences in and around Tampa Bay. In 2006, American Stage in the Park expanded to included comedies and modern musicals presented under the stars each spring at Demens Landing Park in downtown St. Pete.
