FIRST FILMED in 1984 and starring Kevin Bacon, Footloose has enjoyed many a revival, being adapted for Broadway in 1998 where it ran for more then 700 performances, while 2011 saw it filmed yet again - all proof of its enduring appeal.
Galway's Twin Productions is putting on its dancing shoes next week when it stages Footloose in the Town Hall Theatre. Twin Productions’ Brian Power reveals the factors that prompted him and his brother Seán to stage it in Galway.
“Footloose hasn’t been on the circuit much in recent years," he says, "but what also appealed to me about the show is that it is a heart-warming story, with a strong sense of community, and yet an undercurrent of tragedy. There is great feeling in the show and great music as well. It offers great opportunity for character actors. The show is all about a community effort and at the end of the day that is what our society is about, having everyone involved in our production.”
