Please, Louise! Pull me off of my knees! How can one person bring an entire community to its feet, especially in a town where dancing is illegal? In a time where people rocked out to the music of Kenny Loggins, Bonnie Tyler, and Anne Wilson, a high school student named Ren McCormick challenges the moral restrictions of the small town of Bomont and the authorities who stand to maintain them.
One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing 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, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. 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 (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
A cast of Hudson High School students will “kick off their Sunday shoes” on Friday, March 23rd and Saturday, March 24th at 7:00 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Tickets are $6, and all seats are reserved. New this year is the online ticketing platform, found by going to https://hudsonpiratepride.
