More About Footloose the Musical

The Hexagon Players are pleased to announce our second show at the Roxbury Arts Alliance Investor’s Bank Theater, Footloose The Musical!

One of the most explosive movie musicals in recent memory bursts onto the live stage with exhilarating results. 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 edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid.

The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.

More About this Event Poster: Roxbury Arts Alliance

The Roxbury Arts Alliance is a volunteer group that has been promoting the arts in and around Roxbury Township, New Jersey since 1997. What began with occasional performances in coffee houses and local houses of worship by several parents of Roxbury HS parents has evolved into year-round programming, classes, and performances. In 2009, we opened The Investors Bank Theater, now home to the Roxbury Performing Arts Center.

The RAA is home to amateur and professional artists alike. While we strive to offer family entertainment with renowned acts at the Roxbury Performing Arts Center, the majority of what we do is offer families and their children opportunities to learn about the arts and a venue to see live performances.

But we don’t stop there. Because we want to share our passion and our mission, we often serve as consultants in support of other events in Roxbury, and we work with other organizations to promote an appreciation in the arts throughout Morris County.
