July 27 – 30, 2023

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the local laws — including a ban on dancing — an edict from the local preacher bent on exercising control over the town’s youth. When the Reverend’s rebellious daughter shows interest in the “new kid,” her boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation and many of the locals are eager to believe the worst about him. With its Oscar-nominated hit score (as well as many a nod to Kevin Bacon’s legendary performance), this musical celebrates the exhilaration of youth, the wisdom found through communication, and the power of forgiveness.
