DESCRIPTION

Norwegian Cruise Line is excited to announce FOOTLOOSE will be joining our exciting line-up of Broadway shows! Reimagined, revamped and all new and exciting choreography by Nick Kenkel!

Footloose is the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago. He and his mother move to the small town of Bomont after his father abandons them. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Bomont. The Reverend has convinced the town to outlaw dancing, which Ren finds unbelievable. With the help of the Reverend’s daughter Arie and his new best friend Willard, Ren convinces the Reverend to let the teenagers dance, and in the process helps the town to heal from a tragedy that affected them all.
