Are you as excited as I am to hear that the brilliant movie classic Footloose will be gracing the stage at The Peacock, Sadlers Wells in Central London this month?

This production stars Gareth Gates as Willard and Maureen Nolan as Vi Moore.

Joshua Dowen will play Ren McCormack, the role immortalised on screen by Kevin Bacon. Joshua’s stage credits include Dogfight at Southwark Playhouse, Cool Rider at the Duchess Theatre and All or Nothing at the Vaults Festival.

This 1984 classic film is known for it’s toe-tapping music and great choreography and the stage version looks just as thrilling.

Take a look at the trailer…
