KICK OFF YOUR SHOES
Fans of Footloose, the iconic 1980s movie with a great soundtrack, featuring a youthful Kevin Bacon as a rebellious city teenager and John Lithgow as the conservative pastor, are in for a treat. Footloose has two different incarnations on the boards in Durban: the 17th annual Young Performers Production is a reprise of the full-length musical, Footloose, directed by Daisy Spencer, featuring a cast of actors performing to a band at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. Meanwhile, the theme song Footloose is being performed as a linedancing number by Denim and Diamonds as part of the line-up in this year’s Shall We Dance, on at the Playhouse Theatre. Both have received rave reviews and run until this Sunday, and booking is through Computicket.
