Do you want to be in Footloose the musical?

03/06/2017

Youth Music Theatre Scotland are very pleased to announce their Summer 2017 show will be:  FOOTLOOSE!

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. 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 is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

This project will run from the 8th – 22nd of July at Adam Smith Theatre and this project is for young people aged 11-21 years.

You don’t have to have worked with YMTS before and there is no experience necessary to take part.

The rehearsals will be from 10am – 5pm daily for the first week and there will be additional evening calls made in week 2 to accommodate dress rehearsals and shows.

The cost for this project is £250, this includes 4 tickets to any performance and a production T-shirt.

There will be a casting weekend some time in June and these dates are TBC.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the project please get in touch with Amanda via email: amandaymts@gmail.com
