The story follows Ren, an ordinary kid from Chicago, as he’s forced to move to a small town with his mother after his father abandons them. An avid dancer, Ren is dumbstruck by the towns laws against cutting loose and trouble seems to find him at every turn. But when the local kids find relief in Ren’s fancy footwork, will they be able to change not just the town’s beliefs, but the law as well?

Based on the original classic film starring Kevin Bacon, this Broadway show burst onto the scene in 1998, 14 years after the original films release. The show played both Broadway and London, with national tours in both countries, winning the Tony Awards for best Book of a Musical, Original Score, and Best Choreography. The film received an update and remake in 2011.
