The Bothell High Theater Arts Department will present “Footloose: the Musical” this month at the Northshore Performing Arts Center, 18125 92nd Ave. N.E., Bothell.

The show is based on the hit 1980s movie starring Kevin Bacon, John Lithgow and Diane Wiest. It is the story of teenager, Ren, and his mother who move from Chicago to a small town. When they arrive, they learn that years ago, a fatal car accident killed four local teens, one of them being Reverend Shaw Moore’s son. In an attempt to prevent anymore accidents, Moore pushes for a town ordinance against dancing. With the help of Ren and Reverend Moore’s rebellious daughter, Ariel, the town gets the law changed. Moore realizes that only by trusting teens can they truly become trustworthy.

This adaptation is directed by James Wilson and choreographed by Sheri Lewis. The musical director is Michael Corey.

Shows are at 7:30 p.m. May 8, 9, 10, 16 and 17, and an American Sign Language-interpreted presentation at 2 p.m. May 17. Tickets are $8/students and seniors and $12/adults and are available online at www.bothelldrama.org or at the door. There will be a silent auction on closing night with proceeds going to the theater arts department.
