Dubuque Senior High School will present the musical adaptation of the smash-hit movie, Footloose.

Performances will be Friday, November 2 and Saturday, November 3 at 7:00pm, and Sunday, November 4 at 2:00pm. Dubuque Senior’s production will be performed in the Lamb-Hedeman Auditorium with a cast, crew and orchestra of more than 100 students.

Based on the hit 1980s musical, and featuring top songs from the era, Footloose is the story of a group of students triumphing over tragedy. Life in small-town Bomont is peaceful until Ren arrives from Chicago. Breaking every taboo, Ren and his fellow students bring dance back to the heart of a town struggling with the loss of one of their own. Footloose is a celebration of the power of young people – and the young at heart.  Music is by Tom Snow, lyrics by Dean Pitchford and additional music by Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman.
