Sellouts prompt longer run for CMC’s ‘Footloose’

Due to sell-out performances on opening weekend, CMC Theater will add one more performance of the musical, “Footloose.” A sixth performance will be presented at 3 p.m. Sunday, May 5.

“Footloose” is a high-energy production based on the 1984 movie of the same title. The stage show opened on Broadway in 1998.

Based on true events, the story follows a young and restless teenager who loves music and dance and moves from Chicago to the small town of Bomont, a community with no movie theaters, no clubs, no entertainment of any kind. To complicate and frustrate matters, dancing in Bomont is against the law, and that law was handed down by a stern authority that the local folks, including the teenagers, have come to accept and obey. Or do they?

The musical score includes the hits “Footloose,” “Somebody’s Eyes,” “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” and “Almost Paradise,” and is backed by an orchestra of local musicians.

“Footloose” offers its audience a series of lively dances and dance movements, stellar vocal performances, and a thought-provoking look at timeless topics, including accepting and adjusting to change, the generation gap, what is right and what is wrong, and love.

For more information, call director Cristine Aronson at 947-8227.
