Catch “Footloose: The Musical” at the Sundance Mountain Resort!

Sundance Mountain Resort is pleased to announce “Footloose: The Musical” for the 2021 Sundance Summer Theatre in partnership with Utah Valley University School of Performing Arts. Now in their 13th production, the two organizations draw on talented community actors and professionals from around the country to create another exhilarating and dynamic show.

“Footloose” is a 1998 musical based on the original film of 1984, which was filmed locally at the Lehi Roller Mills. It tells the story of Ren McCormack,a teenager from Chicago, who moves to a small farming town after his father abandons him. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Shaw Moore, who has convinced the town to outlaw dancing. With the help of the Reverend’s daughter, Ariel, and his new best friend, Willard, Ren tries to convince Reverend Moore to let the teenagers dance, and in the process help the town heal from a tragedy that affected them all. The show features great music, dancing, and a setting that will remind us all of home. Hit songs include “Holding Out for a Hero”, “Let’s Hear It for the Boy”, “Almost Paradise”, and “Footloose.”

We hope you will join us for this year’s spectacular performance. The Summer Theatre is held at the stunning Sundance Amphitheater, rated one of the “10 Best Outdoor Theatre Experiences in the Country” by Fodor’s Travel Guide. Shows will begin July 22nd and run through August 14th on Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights at 8:00 pm.
