Carlsbad Community Theatre Presents Footloose

Celebrate the 80’s and get ready to cut FOOTLOOSE June 2015 – Footloose The Musical will have you dancing in your seat at AVO Playhouse, July 24th – August 2nd. To the rock’in rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. 

Based on the original movie, Footloose The Musical tells the story of the lively city boy, Ren, who moves to a small town where dancing has been banned by an anxious Reverend. After the culture shock sets in, Ren tries to gain support from his friends to overturn the extreme ban, and while doing so, he catches the attention of the preacher's daughter. The incredible pop/rock score features such hits as “Let’s Hear It for the Boy,” “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out for a Hero,” and the hit title song by Kenny Loggins that will bring audiences to their feet – “Footloose.” 

It’s an energetic show with great music and dancing. Award winning Director/Choregrapher Ali Whitman has assembled an incredible triple threat cast. And award winning musical director Jessie Bullock has this group sounding like a Broadway sound track. This show will be the talk of North County. Footloose The Musical is Carlsbad Community Theartre’s 32nd Summer Production. Each year as our community comes together to support our local talent, they leave the theatre knowing that many of these talented actors will soon be on Broadway. It’s going to be an impressive show. The cast includes many of the top triple threat teenagers in the area and seasoned Adults. We are incredibly proud of this cast. 

The creative team includes Ali Whitman (Director/Choreographer), Jesse Bullock (Music Director), Court Thompson (Sound Designer), Abbie Arechiga (Costumer), Bill Herrick (Scenic Designer), Suzanne Asebroek (Production Stage Manager), and Ric Henry (Production Manager).
