Wayne High to present 'Footloose'


Kick off your Sunday shoes!  It's almost time for Footloose to debut on the Wayne High School Lecture Hall Stage.  Tickets are on sale now for the musical version of this iconic classic from the 1980s!  

Performances will be Friday and Saturday, March 24 and 25 at 7 p.m. and a Sunday, March 26 matinee at 2 p.m.  

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. 

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 pins a father longing for the son he lost against 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, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.
