The nonprofit community theater Theater Works, which has staged dramas, comedies, and musicals for more than 25 years, continues its current season with Footloose, an explosive musical adapted from the 1984 film. With an Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score, Footloose explores the battles between generations and moral code set against the backdrop of a small, conservative town. After Ren is forced to move from Chicago, he quickly finds his new home’s inhabitants to be unwelcoming—there’s a local preacher who keeps a firm eye on moral edicts, a tight ban on dancing, and no welcome mats. Determined to bring toe-tapping tunes back to the community, Ren befriends a handful of loveable locals while jazz squaring around the town bully. Call ahead to reserve tickets for preferred show date and time.
