The Sundance Summer Theatre presents Footloose: The Musical
As one of the most iconic movie musicals in recent history, Footloose bursts onto the stage as a thrilling live performance. Footloose is a 1998 musical based on the original film of 1984, which was filmed locally at the Lehi Roller Mills. It tells the story of Ren McCormack, a teenager from Chicago, who moves to a small farming town after his father abandons him. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including the Reverend Shaw Moore, who has convinced the town to outlaw dancing. With the help of the Reverends’ daughter, Ariel, and his new best friend, Willard, Ren tries to convince Reverend Moore to let the teenagers dance, and in the process help the town heal from a tragedy that affected them all.
Don’t miss out on this number one soundtrack on the billboard charts. With over 17 million copies sold, the music of Footloose will make you want to get up and dance! With highlights such as “Footloose,” “Holding Out for a Hero,” “Let’s Hear it for the Boy’s,” “Almost Paradise”, and more!

The theatre is located about 500 yards up the hill from the base of Ray’s Lift. Guests are welcome to either walk or ride our tractor-pulled ride up the hill to the Amphitheatre.

The doors open for each show at 7:00 p.m. with the performance beginning at 8:00 p.m. All lawn seating is first come, first served so we recommend guests arriving as early as possible. Since bench seating is assigned, we recommended that guests arrive no later than 7:45 p.m. to the theatre so as to not disturb others once the performance begins.

Yes. Guests may begin to make their way to the Amphitheatre at 6:00 p.m.
What time does seating begin?
Doors will open at 7:00 p.m.

The musical Footloose is based on and closely follows the 1984 film. The 1984 film received a PG rating (just after PG-13 became an option) and the 2011 film version received a PG-13 rating. The dialogue contains a few mild expletives, such as “damn,” “hell,” “shit,” and “ass” but no so-called “f-bombs.” There are half a dozen so-called “vain references to deity,” such as “Oh God,” “Oh my God,” and “Thank God” but neither “Jesus” nor “Christ” are used as exclamations. There is also some mild innuendo in lines and lyrics such as “party in their pants” and “you make him horny.” The 1984 PG film, rather than the 2011 PG-13 film, is the closest match of the material in the musical version and the one that parents would want to look at in deciding whether to bring their children or youth.
The Summer Theater has been a Sundance tradition since 1970. Set beneath the shadow of Mount Timpanogos, the Summer Theater productions provide an enchanting experience unlike any other. The Theater has been produced in partnership with Utah Valley University since 2008, with previous titles including Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, Mamma Mia, and more.
