SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) — Sun Prairie High School is taking on Footloose the Musical.
From high-energy dance numbers to popular songs, the production is expected to bring in quite the audience.
Footloose is the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago. He and his mother move to the small town of Bomont after his father abandons them. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Bomont. The Reverend has convinced the town to outlaw dancing, which Ren finds unbelievable. With the help of the Ariel (the Reverend’s daughter) and Willard (a country hick who becomes his best friend), Ren convinces the Reverend to let the teenagers dance, and in the process helps the town to heal from a tragedy that affected them all.
Thursday on Wake Up Wisconsin, two of the stars of the show stopped by the studio to give our team a sneak peek.
Footloose opens Friday, Nov. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Sun Prairie High School Performing Arts Center. It runs for two weekends. To see a list of performances or buy tickets ahead of time, click HERE.
