Footloose at the Merlin

Story posted on

Kick off your Sunday shoes and cut loose as the explosive rock ‘n’ roll musical sensation Footloose bursts on to the Merlin stage in a  show sure to get your toes tapping. 

Based on the 1980s hit film that took the world by storm, Footloose the musical sizzles with the same spirit of youth, rebellion and romance. 

Performed by award-winning youth company Tri.art and put together in just 10 days, this cracking show will also feature some very special guests each night..

City boy Ren thinks his life is over when he is forced to move to Bomont, an American rural backwater. But things are far worse than he could have ever imagined, as the town bans dancing. It isn’t long before Ren can’t resist breaking the rules, and he’s not alone.

Enjoy classic hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let’s Hear it for the Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose. 

Tri.art have won Best Youth Production for the last two years at the Somerset Fellowship of Drama awards for their stunning past productions of Les Miserables and In The Heights.Their popular shows sell, out so make sure you grab a ticket early.

The show is on 22nd, 23rd and 24th August, 7pm, tickets cost £10.50 and £7.50 and can be bought online merlintheatre .co.uk  or call the box office on 01373 465949.
