Wakefield West Riding Theatre Company 


Tuesday, 16 October, 2018 to Saturday, 20 October, 2018
Matcham Auditorium, Theatre Royal Wakefield

Theatre Royal Wakefield is for everyone in the district. That’s why we are proud to present work from our local community, societies and groups. We work with over 20 local amateur groups who offer performance opportunities for all in a diverse range of genres such as musicals, plays and dance shows. Book these shows to see local talent on stage, or if you fancy treading the boards yourself, get in touch with one of the societies using the details provided.

Footloose explodes onto the Theatre Royal Wakefield stage with classic 80’s anthems including Holding Out for a Hero, Let’s Hear It For The Boy and of course the title track, Footloose.

Life in small town Bomont is peaceful, until city boy Ren arrives. Breaking every taboo, Ren brings dance back into the heart of a town held back by a tragedy.

Based on the 80’s movie, Footloose has become a stage musical phenomenon. Packed full of electrifying dance routines, it is sure to get you on your feet.
