Ren has just moved to the small town of Bomont from Chicago with his mother. At high school, Ren thinks everyone is playing a joke of him when they tell him that dancing is illegal. He soon learns that after four kids died in a car accident coming home from a dance, they passed this law. At first, he tries to go along with it, but eventually he decides he needs to fight it.
This is a great family friendly musical. It’s good light-hearted holiday fare. The choreography is excellent, especially in the opening and closing numbers. The entire cast is great and truly bring this story to life. If you are a fan of the films, you will definitely enjoy this production.
