Footloose waltzes to Champlin Park’s stage

Champlin Park High School’s Footloose cast rehearses for their upcoming shows this weekend on Friday, May 2 and Saturday May 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the Champlin Park auditorium. Performances will also be held Thursday, May 8, Friday, May 9 and Saturday, May 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Champlin Park High School. Footloose is a classic tale of teenage rebellion featuring Ren McCormack, a teenager who’s got Rock and Roll in his veins. When Ren and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small Midwestern town, he’s in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can’t quite believe he’s living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. However, there is one small pleasure: Ariel Moore, a troubled but lovely blonde with a jealous boyfriend. And a Bible-thumping minister, who is responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Ren and his classmates want to do away with this ordinance, especially since the senior prom is around the corner, but only Ren has the courage to initiate a battle to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit of the repressed townspeople.
