Date Posted: 27/09/2015

Footloose: The Musical will burst back onto the stage next year, playing at a series of venues including the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh, and Kings Theatre in Portsmouth.

It will open at the Orchard Theatre in Dartford on 8th February, and close at the Liverpool Empire on 14th May.

Footloose follows the story of a city teenager, Ren, who moves to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned. But can his rebellious spirit and love for dancing be contained?

Based on the iconic 1984 movie, the show features classic 80s anthems Holding Out For A Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear It For The Boy, and title track Footloose.

Gareth Gates of Pop Idol fame has been confirmed to play the role of Willard – Ren’s best friend – while the casting of Ren is yet to be announced.
