Footloose

YAP Color 1tag

Music by Tom Snow, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford
Stage Adaptation by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie
Based on the original screenplay by Dean Pitchford
Additional Music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, 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, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt 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 (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) 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.

July 24-27, 2014
Thursday-Saturday at 7pm, Sunday at 2pm

Tickets: $20 for Adults and $15 for Students (including college students)


 

WELCOME TO OUR 100th SEASON!


2014-2015 Season

Swing
Original Concept by Paul Kelly
Original Direction and Choreography by Lynn Taylor-Corbett

“Two thirds rhythm and one third soul.“ is how Fats Waller defined the uniquely American form of popular music and dance known as ”swing.” Requiring only joyful enthusiasm and a ready partner, it shattered ethnic and cultural barriers, generating specialty styles such as Jive, Swing, Lindy Hop, West Coast Swing, and Hip-Hop Swing. SWING! celebrates this remarkable diversity to the beat of the most exhilarating songs of the period. But as this enthralling song-and-dance show makes abundantly clear, swing was never a time or place – it has always been a state of mind!

September 5-20, 2014
Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 7pm,
last Saturday (9/20) at 5pm, Sundays at 2pm

Moon Over Buffalo
by Ken Ludwig

Ken Ludwig’s uproarious Moon Over Buffalo follows in the same madcap comedy tradition of Lend me a Tenor. The play centers on George and Charlotte Hay, has-been actors who are on the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue. Just as they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom, everything that could go wrong does go wrong, resulting in non-stop hilarity.

(Contains mature content and may not be suitable for children under 12.)

February 6-21, 2015
Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 7pm, last Saturday (2/21) at 5pm, Sundays at 2pm


Monty Python's Spamalot
Book & Lyrics by Eric Idle
Music by John du Prez & Eric Idle

Lovingly ripped off from the classic comedy film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table in the irreverent signature style of Monty Python. Set to an upbeat score with clever lyrics and plot twists, Spamalot also features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people. Join King Arthur and the Knights on their musical quest for the Holy Grail and experience one of the greatest, and certainly one of the funniest, Broadway musicals of the modern age!

(Contains mature content and may not be suitable for children under 12.)

April 24-May 9, 2015
Thursdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 7pm, last Saturday (5/9) at 5pm, Sundays at 2pm
