Auditions for Footloose: July 13–14

Audition for Footloose the Musical July 13–14!

Toe-tapping pop hits underscore this adaptation of the hit film from 1984. When big-city kid Ren McCormack has to move to the tiny farming town of Bomont, he is appalled to learn about a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher. Determined to rock the boat, Ren and his new friends team up to change their town forever.

FDLCT will present Footloose Sept. 22–25, 2022 at Goodrich Little Theatre. The production will be directed by Nancy Irizarry.

Auditions will be held July 13th and 14th from 6-8PM. Participants can arrive at any point throughout the audition time and do not need to come to both days.

In the audition, participants will:

  • Perform 1 minute of a prepared song (no accompanist, you may play your own music or sing without music)
  • Learn some choreography
  • Read lines for some parts if interested

Call-backs if needed will be on Sat. July 16th from 9-11AM.
