Characters:
REN MCCORMACK
Ren McCormack has recently traded in the big city for small-town life after his father walked out on him and his mother, Ethel. He's trying his best to put his past behind him, but his new home has problems of its own. Ren tries to encourage Bomont to loosen its strict ban on dancing and live a little. Cast a young man who can do it all - act, sing, and of course, dance. This young performer should possess the magnetism to inspire a whole community to cut loose.

CHICAGO FRIENDS (DANI, LINDSAY, STEVIE, MARTY)
Chicago Friends (Dani, Lindsay, Stevie, Marty) celebrate with Ren on his last night in town before his big move. They only appear at the top of the show, so feel free to double cast these parts with teenagers in Bomont.

ETHEL MCCORMACK
Ethel McCormack has recently arrived to Bomont with her son, Ren, stepping away from a failed marriage and trying to make a fresh start. She's got a sense of humor about her situation and a great need to make sure her son is adjusting. Find a young woman with a great singing voice who can convey a mature presence.

REVEREND SHAW MOORE
Reverend Shaw Moore is the most influential figure in Bomont. His conservative, religious views became strident after his son Bobby passed away in the Potawney Bridge accident, after driving home from a big dance - in fact, he's outlawed dancing altogether. This is a great role for a young man who reads as a bit older onstage and an actor who can command the stage with his acting and singing.

CHUCK CRANSTON
Chuck Cranston is Ariel's boyfriend and a recent high school dropout. He doesn't have much ambition besides making sure he has control over Ariel. Cast a young man with the acting chops to appear intimidating and physically overbearing.

ARIEL MOORE
Ariel Moore is a young lady caught between her father Reverend Shaw Moore's conservative beliefs and her own aspirations to experience life and enjoy it for herself. Ren ignites an excitement in her, and she learns quickly that she has to stand up to her father to get what she wants. Ariel is a role for a charismatic performer who can act, sing and dance.

VI MOORE
Vi Moore is married to Reverend Shaw Moore, and though she usually agrees with her husband's point of view, she's not afraid to disagree when the tensions rise and tempers flare in the house. Cast a young woman who possesses a more mature energy and is a proficient vocalist.

LULU
Lulu has recently invited her sister Ethel to stay with her and her husband, Wes, in the small town of Bomont. As Ren struggles to fit in with the rest of the teenagers, Lulu does her best to remain a patient and supportive host. Find a young woman who is a talented actor and a suitable fit with Wes.

WES
Wes is Lulu's husband and a small-town kind of a guy. He helps Ren find a job, but, unfortunately, Ren's employment doesn't last long. Wes grows impatient but continues to support his family in this tough, transitional period. Cast a young man who will make a good pairing with Lulu.

RUSTY
Rusty is Ariel's best friend who talks a mile a minute and has a crush on the soft-spoken Willard. She's unafraid to say what she wants, if only Willard would pick up on the clues. Cast a spunky young female who can do it all and can encourage Willard to finally ask her out.

URLEEN & WENDY JO
Urleen & Wendy Jo are part of Ariel's group of girlfriends who stick together no matter what. While Urleen may be a little more blunt, Wendy Jo is definitely a little more eccentric. Cast a pair of young ladies who are both talented and complements to Ariel and Rusty.

WILLARD HEWITT
Willard Hewitt is a country boy of few words and even fewer dance steps. At first, he may appear physically aggressive, but really, he's just a soft-spoken guy. He quickly becomes friends with Ren, and the unlikely pair lead the charge to bring dancing back to the town. Though at the top of the show he has two left feet, he commits to learning dance steps at the Bar-B-Que and dazzles the entire club. This role is great for a young man who is a skilled actor, dancer and singer.

PRINCIPAL CLARK
Principal Clark is the boss at Bomont's high school and an adamant enforcer of the town's strict guidelines. Cast a young woman who can emulate an older presence and is unafraid to take command of the stage.

COACH DUNBAR
Coach Dunbar is a teacher at the high school who strongly supports the town's anti-dancing laws. When Ren arrives, Coach Dunbar does not make it easy for him, and exacerbates Ren's situation by pitting him against other students. This is a great cameo role for a young man who has an authoritative energy.

LYLE & TRAVIS
Lyle & Travis are two members of the wrestling team who don't like Ren, the new kid in school. This pair of cameo parts is a good fit for two young men who can make strong character choices.

BETTY BLAST
Betty Blast owns the burger joint in town and gives the struggling Ren a job when he's down on his luck. Be sure to cast a girl who can offer a bit of personality and strength. She has no trouble kicking anyone out of her restaurant if they're causing trouble.

ELEANOR DUNBAR
Eleanor Dunbar is a prominent member of the town council and Coach Dunbar's wife. She, along with other council members, must decide on whether they should uphold its existing moral laws. This is a suitable cameo role for a young woman who can make big acting choices.

COWGIRL BONNIE
Cowgirl Bonnie leads a band that frequents the Bar-B-Que. She's the club's favorite entertainer, so be sure to cast a young woman with a great singing voice and a lot of stage presence.

COWBOY BOB
Cowboy Bob is a usual patron at the Bar-B-Que and takes a liking to Rusty when the high school teens visit the dance hall for the first time. This featured role is perfect for a young man with strong dancing abilities.

COWGIRL JUDE, COWBOY CHET & COWGIRL LAURA JO
Cowgirl Jude, Cowboy Chet & Cowgirl Laura Jo are part of Cowboy Bob's entourage who are having a routinely good night dancing when the Bomont teenagers make a visit. Cast a trio of performers who have a lot of presence and elevated dancing skills.

BICKLE, JETER & GARVIN
Bickle, Jeter & Garvin are teenage boys ready to help Ren and Willard take on the town's laws. Find three young men who are good singers, actors and dancers, and who work well together as a team.

COP
Cop in town is the ultimate enforcer of the town's strict laws. This is a wonderful cameo role for a young man or woman who can exude confidence and intimidation.

OVERVIEW / SYNOPSIS
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.
 
Getting to Know... FOOTLOOSE is the perfect show to introduce young people through the 9th grade to the magic of live musical theatre.
