    In the rural town of Bomont, the rebellious Ren McCormack arrives from Chicago, sparking a fervent desire for change as he challenges the community's strict ban on dancing enforced by Reverend Shaw Moore. Through Ren's determination and with the support of newfound allies, including the minister's daughter Ariel, the musical "Footloose" unfolds as a vibrant tale of defiance and freedom.

    The Center for Theater Arts, located in Mt. Lebanon, offers more than 80 classes in the performing arts including singing, dancing, acting and more. The non-profit serves more than 500 children of all ages and abilities.
