Presented by North Shore Theatre Company.

It is time to bring the 80's back with high energy pop and rock hits that everyone will want to sing and dance along to with the well-known classic Footloose.

Footloose Youth 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 Shaw.

The reverend has convinced the town to outlaw dancing, which Ren finds unbelievable. With the help of 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 heal from a tragedy that affected them all.
