There is no stopping Holroyd Musical and Dramatic Society as they kick off their Sunday shoes and celebrate 45 incredible years with the 1980’s hit, Footloose The Musical.

Based on the 1980’s hit film, Footloose The Musical sizzles with romance, rebellion and the journey of self-discovery.

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren thinks his life is over. What he isn’t prepared for are the local laws, including a ban on dancing. It isn’t long before Ren can’t resist breaking the rules.

“Spirits are high and the cast and production teams are pumped and ready to bring Footloose to life on stage,” said director, Paul Jenkins.

“The cast we have assembled are doing a phenomenal job and it would be a shame to miss out on what is going to be a fun, energetic and heartfelt show.”

For the Carter family of Blacktown, Footloose The Musical is a family affair. Martyn Carter plays the principal, Leanne Carter is part of the committee and is also ticket seller, their son James plays Willard and their daughter Lauren is part of the ensemble.

“We have a great following and huge support from people from all over Sydney, not just in western Sydney,” Mrs Carter said. “It’s a great feeling when you speak with audiences and find out they’ve come from the North Shore, Blue Mountains or Sutherland Shire to see our shows.”

“The committee is run by a dedicated team of volunteers and we are all passionate about musical theatre and entertaining audiences with quality productions,” Holroyd Musical and Dramatic Society president Elisa Vitagliani said.

“Despite being a relatively long running company we are continuing to see new members and young performers join the society. Once they see how dedicated, friendly and passionate we are, they want to be involved in our shows.”

An eight piece band will play the classic hit musical songs including ‘Let’s Hear It For The Boy’, ‘Almost Paradise’, ‘Holding Out For A Hero’ and the popular ‘Footloose’.

Details: Footloose The Musical will run until September 24 with shows at 2pm and 8pm held at The Redgum Centre, 2 Lane Street, Wentworthville.
