High-energy music, exhilarating dance, and rebellious determination.

Everybody cut loose, kick off your Sunday shoes and revel in this throwback to teen romance, angst, and the desire to dance! Based on the 1980s movie that took the world by storm, this Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score features dynamic new songs for the stage. Life in small-town Bomont is peaceful until city boy Ren McCormack arrives. Breaking every taboo, Ren brings dance back to the heart of a town held back by memories of tragedy, leading to a real senior prom for him and his classmates. This sensational high-energy, dance-packed musical celebrates the wisdom of listening to one another and the power of forgiveness.

“This is a show you want to dance to! The score is the best kind of blast from the past!”
