Music by Tom Snow | Lyrics by Dean Pitchford
Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie
Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford
Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar,
Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

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 Demen’s 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.

“Exhilarating!  You’ll have a hard time staying in your seat.” –WNBC
