How about a meet to the theatre? I haven't been since I was a kid lol. Checking for North West based ones, there is the Lowry (Salford Quays) and found an interesting one - Footloose - The Musical The hit movie, live on stage. Based on the smash hit 1980s movie starring Kevin Bacon, Footloose tells the story of dance-mad city boy Ren, who has to move with his Mom to a rural backwater in small town America. Ren is stunned to learn that dancing isn?t allowed anywhere within the town limits, thanks to the strict rules applied by the local Minister. But Ren breaks loose, all hell breaks out and soon the whole town is on its dancin? feet?. Featuring the hottest young talent around, this fast-paced show is packed full of electrifying dancing and classic 80s hits, including Holding Out For A Hero, Almost Paradise, Let?s Hear It For The Boy and of course the title track, Footloose. ?Sensational? The Sun ?Kicks up a high-octane storm? London Evening Standard ?The most electrifying show? Sky News ?Nothing comes hotter then Footloose? The Mirror ?All singing, all dancing, it?s a blast?
