Presented by Manchester Musical Youth

Fresh off the back of their 3rd successive NODA Award for Best Youth Production, Manchester Musical Youth return to Z-arts with a high energy classic based on the classic film starring Kevin Bacon.

‘Footloose’ follows the story of Ren McCormack, an upbeat Chicago teen who moves to small town Bomont in which, as a result of the efforts of a local minister dancing and rock music have been banned. Ren is instantly smitten with the ministers daughter Ariel and we follow their relationship and those of their closest friends as Ren tries to shake up the town with his energy, his passion and his dance.

February 13th – 16th 2019, 7:30pm at Z-arts, Manchester.

Tickets Available Now! Priced £16 Adults and £11 Concessions
