Coastal Performing Arts Foundation's new branch, Players West, now offering theater opportunities for all ages on the Central Coast, is proud to present Footloose the Musical! Celebrating 40 years since Footloose first graced the silver screen, we welcome back these iconic characters and no matter how tragic life has been for them, they have not been defeated. As a consequence, we, the audience, find them likable, sympathetic and human. The story is about embracing fear and forgiving one's self for making life choices that paralyze self-growth for fear of losing control.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. 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 pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

Note: This show contains mature and triggering themes such as domestic violence, grief and loss.
