Chandler presents Footloose, the 21st annual 4th of July youth musical, featuring over 70 youth from the region.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to the small farming town of Bomont, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher.

As Ren challenges the reverend to relax the rules, the 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. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage adaptation, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people and of keeping an open mind.

Footloose is sponsored by the Lamson Howell Foundation, the Tikkun Olam Foundation, and the Byrne Foundation.

Tickets go on sale Monday, June 17.

Footloose is presented through special arrangement with R&H Theatricals: www.rnh.com
