In July and August, Studio East presents their 25th anniversary season finale with the exhilarating musical, Footloose! Based on the 1984 film, this musical follows an eccentric teenager as he moves to a small middle-American town where dance is forbidden. He rallies a gang of friends to help him defy the town and create a true rock’n’roll prom.
Studio East’s Annual Summer Musical features an incredible group of teen actors as well as several Studio alumni local audiences might recognize. Nominated for four Tony Awards, Footloose combines a bold and yet heart-warming story with irresistible song and dance numbers. Famous for its songs “Footloose/On Any Sunday” and “Holding Out for a Hero,” Footloose combines songs from the movie soundtrack, which reached number one on Billboard charts, with energetic new songs set for the stage. This dynamic musical ultimately celebrates young people – their sincerity, their charisma, and their bold approach to life.
Footloose is recommended for ages 8+ and has a running time of approximately 2 hours with an intermission. Adult tickets are $20, while youth under 21 and seniors 65+ are $16.
All performances are at Kirkland Performance Center, located at 350 Kirkland Ave in Kirkland. Performances run July 28 – August 5.
