'Footloose' opens at Cumming Playhouse

CUMMING, Ga. -- Everybody cut loose! Mello Drama Productions' staging of Footloose opens Thursday at the Cumming Playhouse.

Footloose takes place in the small town of Bomont, where dancing has been banned. When a big city boy named Ren arrives, he promises to reclaim the town for its young people.

The stage production of Footloose is based on the classic 1980s movie, which spawned such hits songs as "Holding Out for a Hero," "Let's Hear It for the Boy" and, of course, the title track. A remake of Footloose was filmed in Georgia a couple years ago.
