The Rye Country Day School Drama and Dance Department is proud to present Footloose
, one of the most iconic movie musicals of all time. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town's youth that he cannot command in his own home. To the rockin' rhythm of its Oscar, Tony, and Grammy winning score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!), Footloose
celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people and guiding them with an open mind Performances are on February 27 and 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Dunn Performing Arts Center.
