"Makes you want to dance in the streets." -The Chicago Critic
"It's the kind of show that elevates your heart rate. Head for the nearest dance floor." -London Guardian
Based on Kevin Bacon's 1984 hit movie which captured the heart of America, this musical bursts on to the stage with a youthful spirit, dazzling dance scenes and electrifying music. Ren, a teen from Chicago, is forced to move with his mother to a puritanical small town in Texas after his father abandons the family. To his shock, dancing and rock and roll are forbidden! He and his classmates want a senior prom. It doesn't take Ren long to shake up the status quo and soon the whole class is on their feet sending the town into a frenzy. This show will have everyone ready to join in as the cast dances across the stage!
