Footloose the musical tells the story of Ren McCormack who is forced to move from Chicago to a small town nobody has ever heard of - Beaumont.
He soon finds himself at odds with the repressive atmosphere there where the spiritual life of the community is overseen by the power local minister Reverend Moore.
Ren is stunned to learn that dancing is not allowed anywhere within the town limits of Beaumont, but discovers that this law dates back five years to a car accident that claimed the lives of four Beaumont teenagers. In the flood of grief after the tragedy the Rev Moore managed to convince the town council to ban dancing.
Ren vows to "take on this town" and incites a revolution by his classmates to throw a dance.
