Final preparations are taking place for a performance of Footloose in Lichfield.

The West End and Broadway musical is being performed by The Lichfield Garrick Youth Theatre from September 28 to October 2.

Based on the Oscar-nominated film, the musical will be the 25th anniversary production for the group when it takes place later this year.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the local laws – including a ban on dancing – which are the brainchild of a local preacher bent on exercising control over the town’s youths.

When the Reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her heart on Ren, her boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation and many of the locals are eager to believe the worst about the new kid. This funpacked, heart warming story takes us through Ren’s struggle to turn things around.

Tickets for the Lichfield Garrick show are priced from £10 to £15 and are available from the box office on 01543 412121 or online at www.lichfieldgarrick.com.
