Based on the 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon and John Lithgow, the production runs through Aug. 12 at Balboa Park’s Casa del Prado Theatre on Fridays at 7 p.m. and weekends at 2 p.m.
The Aug, 11 show will be presented along with American Sign Language interpretation.
Adapted for the stage by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie, “Footloose” takes place at a small farming town that’s turned upside-down when Ren, a high school student from Chicago, reluctantly moves there with his mother. Hailing from a metropolitan area, Ren struggles with fitting in at his new school and adjusting to the restrictive local laws, which includes a ban on dancing. The teen’s personal turmoil worsens when he falls for the wayward daughter of his church’s reverend, the ban’s originator.
