One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory – Footloose – bursts into life at Crawley’s Hawth Theatre this October with an exhilarating performance from COS Musical Theatre.
COS Musical Theatre is performing the 80’s classic, a musical that centres around teenager Ren and his mother Ethel who move from Chicago to a small farming town when his father walks out on them.[one_half]
Ren is prepared for the adjustment period at his new high school but he isn’t prepared for rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home.
When the reverend’s rebellious daughter Ariel sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend Chuck tries to sabotage his reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid.[/one_half][one_half_last] [box type=”shadow” align=”” class=”” width=””]

The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.
