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


Independent Artists’ Playhouse is thrilled to announce the opening of the Emerging Artists’ Playhouse. We are so excited to now be able to offer opportunities to young performers ages 12-18 in the Atlanta area! Our goal is to challenge and inspire young people to develop their artistic and creative skills, empower them as performers and individuals, and encourage them to connect with each other and their community as artists.
