Cape Elizabeth High School Theatre will present the musical "Footloose" – based on the 1984 movie – Nov. 21-24, 2019 at the High School auditorium.

Featuring familiar hits like "Holding Out for a Hero", "Let's Hear It For the Boy", and of course, "Footloose", this modern musical classic is a terrific production the entire family will enjoy.

Book by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie, Music by Tom Snow, Lyrics by Dean Pitchford.

When Ren moves with his mother from bustling Chicago to tiny Bomont, out on the Great Plains of the Midwest, he finds himself unwillingly coming head to head with the local pastor, whose grief over a lost son has led to a misguided effort to put a stop to any activities he sees as dangerous to the souls of the town's youth. Frustrated by the injustice of it all (what's wrong with dancing?) and encouraged by the reverend's own rebellious daughter, Ren finds his way to showing the reverend, the town, and even himself that freedom of the spirit is always worth fighting for.

The production features an energetic cast, orchestra and technical crew made up of nearly 50 students. Working alongside Director Christine Marshall are Joanne Lee, music director; Stephen Price, technical director; Ray Dumont, choreographer; and many dedicated volunteers and the CEHS Theatre Boosters.

Performances are Thursday-Sunday, Nov 21-24. There will be three evening performances at 7 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as well as 2 p.m. matinees on Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets, $15 for adults and $5 for students and seniors can be purchased at the door or online at www.tututix.com/cehstheatre.
