Canton South High School’s Production of Footloose

Footloose​ is the classic 80’s movie that has been turned into an amazing dance musical. Ren must move from Chicago to the small town Bomont when his father leaves his mom. Ren challenges the strict rules that have been created by the town minister, Reverend Shaw Moore after his son and several other teens die in a car crash. It is only through dealing with their own grief that Ren, Reverend Moore and the town of Bomont truly begin to live as a community again. This is not a story of rebellion. This is a story of loss and forgiveness.
