MOC Musical Theatre Brings "Footloose" to MSU

Montclair Operetta Club (MOC) Musical Theatre of Upper Montclair, now in its 80th season, will present the explosive musical Footloose next weekend in Memorial Auditorium.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local laws, including a ban on dancing. Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind. Included in the score are the popular songs "Let's Hear it for the Boy," "Almost Paradise," "Holding Out for a Hero," and "Footloose." The show is appropriate for the entire family and is based on the 1984 hit movie.

Show dates are Friday, April 22 (8 p.m.), Saturday, April 23 (8 p.m.), and Sunday, April 24 (2 p.m.).
