Set beneath the shadow of Mount Timpanogos, the Summer Theater productions provide an enchanting experience unlike any other. This year, in partnership with Utah Valley University, Sundance presents Footloose: The Musical.
As one of the most iconic movie musicals in recent history, Footloose bursts onto the stage as a thrilling live performance. Footloose is a 1998 musical based on the original film of 1984, which was filmed locally at the Lehi Roller Mills. It tells the story of Ren McCormack, a teenager from Chicago, who moves to a small farming town after his father abandons him. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Shaw Moore, who has convinced the town to outlaw dancing.
With the help of the Reverends’ daughter, Ariel, and his new best friend, Willard, Ren tries to convince Reverend Moore to let the teenagers dance, and in the process help the town heal from a tragedy that affected them all.
