It's time to cut loose and kick off your Sunday shoes as the 80s classic gem Footloose the Musical explodes onto The Peacock stage, starring Gareth Gates and Maureen Nolan.

Life is hard enough for city boy Ren when he has to move out into the sticks, but things get worse when he finds out that his new home of Bomont has banned dancing and rock ‘n’ roll. It isn’t long before Ren attempts to break free of his small town life and lets loose total anarchy.

Like the ultimate 80s film starring Kevin Bacon, Footloose the Musical sizzles with spirit, rebellion, romance and fun. Combining hi-energy dancing with classic 80s hits, including Holding Out for a Hero, Let's Hear It For The Boy, performed by the multi-talented cast, this is foot-tapping fun from start to finish. 

Produced by the award-winning team at Selladoor Productions - producers of Avenue Q, American Idiot and Little Shop of Horrors.

“Infectious, irresistible fun”
