The SRJC Theatre Arts Department's 2014-2015 season continues in March with Footloose, stage adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie. by Richard Montoya, directed by Reed Martin.
"Based on the hit film starring Kevin Bacon, Footloose is a toe-tapping, high-octane trip back to the '80s! Big-city teenager Ren McCormick moves to a small Midwest town where rock music, parties, and dancing have all been banned. Backed by a dynamic musical score mixing great new songs with chart-topping classics like "Let's Hear It for the Boy" and "Almost Paradise", Ren must win over the town—and the audience—and teach everyone to "cut foot-loose!" "
The play will run from April 17 through May 3, with both matinee and evening performances. (The May 3 matinee performance coincides with SRJC's open house, "Day Under the Oaks."
