Slow Burn Theatre Cuts Loose With FOOTLOOSE THE MUSICAL

It's time to cut loose and kick off your Sunday shoes with Footloose The Musical as Slow Burn Theatre Company's 2022/2023 season presented by American National Bank continues in the Amaturo Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Saturday December17- Sunday, Jan. 1.

As one of the most explosive movie musicals of all time bursts onto the live stage, audiences can revel in this throwback to teen romance, angst and, of course, the desire to dance to the Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score fueled by the title song as well as "Let's Hear It For The Boy" and "Holding Out For A Hero."

Dean Pitchford, who wrote the original screenplay, created the lyrics to music by Tom Snow and adapted his film for the stage with Walter Bobbie. The soundtrack reached no. 1 on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies. Additional music is by such pop luminaries as Eric Carmen, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Loggins and Jim Steinman.

Footloose The Musical celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind. Kyle Southern and Heather Jane Rolff appear as a mother and her teenage son who move from Chicago to a small town that, to the son's dismay, does not allow dancing. Caiti Marlowe portrays the girl that catches the son's eye, but she is also the daughter of the disapproving Reverend and his wife portrayed by Michael Dean Morgan and Irene Adjan.

They are joined in the cast by Jeffrey Keller, Khadijah Rolle, Kristi Rose Mills, Nikki Dikun,
Dorian Quinn and Jerel Brown. The score is brought to life by a dynamic ensemble featuring
Dalia Aleman, Aaron Atkinson, Dan Carter, Samuel Colina, Stephen Eisenwasser, Matthew
Feinstein, Camryn Handler, Melanie Johnston, Michael Norman, Arianna Pereira, Pablo Pernia, Matthew Quintero and Kimberly Sessions.

Slow Burn Theatre Artistic Director Patrick Fitzwater directs and Shannon Mullen choreographs the production/ Michael Ursua is musical director and leads a live band. The creative team features Sean McClelland as scenic designer, Rick Peña as costume designer, Clifford Spulock as lighting designer, Jackie Lawlor as production stage manager and Andrè Russell as assistant stage manager.
