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 town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for is ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher. 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.

Tickets are available online at or by calling the box office at 770-293-0080, Monday through Friday 9-Noon and 1-4.  The Strand is located at 117 North Park Square, on the Square in Marietta, GA.
