Based on the monster 1980s big-screen hit, an explosive stage production of Footloose writhes into Cambridge for a stint at the Arts Theatre this month. It’s a story that you’re probably familiar with: city boy Ren arrives in a rural, religious backwater where dancing is banned. Before too long he’s making waves with his rebellious moves and soon the whole town is on its feet. Featuring stone-cold classics like Holding out for a Hero, Let’s Hear it for the Boy, and of course, Footloose, as well as epic dance routines, this electrifying show is not to be missed for any lovers of musicals.
The show, which runs from 4-9 April, has a cast that includes Pop Idol star Gareth Gates in the role of Willard and Maureen Nolan as Vi Moore. Tickets start at £18.
