Nov. 3-18: “Footloose” at Broadview Heights Spotlights

Posted: October 19, 2017

The Broadview Heights Spotlights Community Theater’s production of the musical “Footloose” runs Nov. 3-18. 


The 1998 musical is based on the 1984 film. When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new school. He isn’t prepared for the rigorous local laws, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.


The Spotlights cast features Katie Atkinson, Nick Beiser Sr., Nicholas Beiser, Bill Bergeron, Francine Bergeron, Adam Bowers, David Bowler, Delia Brennan, Clorise Busch, Tara Corkery, Ellie St. Cyr, Stephanie Duganier, Charlie Jones, Sean McCormick, Connor Nightingale, Alicia Pedraza, Annette Phelps, Jackie Phelps, Olivia Sharp, Rachel Thall and Nathan Weagraff.


The show is directed by Tim Anderson, with music directed by Ryan Bergeron and choreographed by Zac Hudak. Annette Phelps is producer, and Stephanie Giammarco is costume designer. 


Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., and the Sunday, Nov. 12, matinee will begin at 3 p.m. All shows are at the Broadview Heights Cultural Arts Building, 9543 Broadview Rd., next to the police station. Tickets are $15 for adults and $14 for seniors and students. Reservations can be made at


In addition to regular shows, two benefit performances will feature an hors d’oeuvres reception at 6:30 p.m., and a non-alcoholic beverage bar and dessert at intermission. Guests can bring a bottle of wine. Tickets are $30.
