A high energy show full of dancing and legendary 80’s rock anthems.
From the group that gave you 9-5; The Musical, The Addams Family Musical, and Legally Blonde – The Musical. ADCG proudly presents FOOTLOOSE! The Musical. See the latest fully staged musical production filled with the hit songs: Almost Paradise, Holding out for a Hero, and Let’s Hear it for the Boy to name a few.
FOOTLOOSE! The Musical is a classic story of overcoming grief and experiencing growth and emotional healing, symbolically represented by dancing, as well as persevering with determination to fight for the things you love most.
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! The Musical celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
