Directors Roundtable Backdrops
Based on the 1984 movie, FOOTLOOSE THE MUSICAL has brought a dose of Americana and teenage rebellion to stages worldwide. While the script can be successfully enacted by elementary and middle school casts, the combination of musical numbers and basic dancing requirements may make it more suitable for high school-age casts and older. As the script calls for 8 principal characters and the need for an ensemble, it is best to approach FOOTLOOSE with at least a medium-sized cast. Above and beyond that, Theatre Directors and Set Designers have a considerable number of ways to present the show. The scenery needs span from urban landscapes, for the scenes that take place in Chicago, to Americana-themed interiors, for scenes that take place throughout Ren’s new town. If you have an experienced tech crew you can opt for general rural imagery, like any of our farms or fields, and build out set pieces to meet your exact vision and preferred color scheme. In the spirit of getting down to business you can select from our school and small town based interiors and exteriors to provide all of the scenic elements that your stage will need.
