Footloose the Musical (not Mamma Mia as was previously printed)

RiverMade Productions and the Miramichi Rock and Roll festival presents another smashing summer musical.

Kick off your Sunday shoes and cut loose as the explosive rock ‘n’ roll musical sensation Footloose the Musical  bursts on to the James M. Hill Theatre stage from June 29th- July 2nd, 2018. Based on the 1980s hit film that took the world by storm, Footloose the musical sizzles with the same spirit of youth, rebellion and romance. City boy Ren thinks his life is over when he is forced to move to Bomont, a small rural town, but things are far worse than he could have ever imagined, as the town bans dancing. It isn’t long before Ren can’t resist breaking the rules, and he’s not alone. Grab your tickets at Jean Coutu (Chatham and Newcastle) and the Goodie Shop for $20 each before they are gone. Cut loose with Footloose the Musical.
