USC Players stepping it up with Footloose
 
The USC players are in full swing with rehearsals for this season's fall performance, and are ecstatic about bringing this show to life. FOOTLOOSE is one of the most explosive movie
musicals in recent memory and will burst its way onto the USC stage with its exhilarating music and relevant story.
 
When Ren (Brett Pederson) and his mother (Samantha Chaffee) move from Chicago to a small farming town, Ren is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn't prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing by the local preacher (Brady Berg), determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend's rebellious daughter, Ariel (Kate Koestler), sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend (Justin Dallman) tries to sabotage Ren's reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 15 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, FOOTLOOSE celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.
 
Mark your calendars for Nov 11th, 12th & 13th. Don't miss this epic event and support the USC Players by your attendance.
