When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town in Texas, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the local laws — including a ban on dancing — which are the brainchild of a local preacher bent on exercising control over the town's teens. When the reverend's beautiful, rebellious daughter sets her heart on Ren, her boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, and many of the locals are eager to believe the worst about the new kid. This musical adaptation of the hit film bursts onstage with an Oscar-nominated score, which includes such hit songs as "Footloose," "Holding Out for a Hero," and "Let's Hear It for the Boy."
