Wheeler High School Presents Footloose!
MARIETTA, GA – Wheeler High School Theatre presents the explosive Broadway hit musical Footloose on November 11 - 13 at 7 PM, and November 14 at 2 PM.
Based on the 1984 PG-rated film of the same name, Footloose is set to the rockin’ rhythms of the film’s Oscar and Grammy–nominated Top 40 score and augmented with dynamic new Tony–nominated songs. Against the soundtrack of hits like “Footloose,” “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” “Almost Paradise,” and “Holding Out for a Hero,” Wheeler’s production follows Ren McCormick as he leaves Chicago for a small farming town where rock n’ roll is silenced and dancing is banned. Unprepared for these local edicts, Ren tries to bring forgotten joy to the town, healing himself and others in the process.
Footloose is directed by Dayna Strickland, with music direction by Thomas Chafin. Come celebrate the wisdom of listening to our young people with Wheeler’s uplifting rendition of this beloved classic. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at: WHEELERHS.BOOKTIX.COM. ASL Performances November 11 and 14. Everybody cut Footloose with Wheeler Theatre this November 11 - 14!
