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.
To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

*Register for an “Advanced” Audition. You will be auditioning with students who are also auditioning for Puffs. So, if you are interested in both, you only need to do one audition. However, if you are auditioning for both, please prepare 2 different monologues in order to show your strengths for each show. Since this is an advanced class, we expect that all students will do their homework in terms of understanding the different characters (beyond “the leads”).
Scroll to the bottom and register for an audition slot. Plan to stay for the entire 2 hours.
- Prepare 32 bars of music. Please pick from a musical (no pop music or rock music). Make sure your device used to play music can connect to a blue tooth enabled speaker. No accompanist will be available. Acapella is acceptable, however, not recommended.
- Prepare a 1 minute monologue
- Come to the audition prepared for movement. (A bit of choreography will be taught at the audition)
