Footloose: The Musical
The NI School of Music and Theatre sold out three of their shows in Belvoir Studio Theatre during 2022 and are now delighted to bring the blockbusting stage version of the Academy Award nominated Footloose: The Musical to the Belfast stage as their first show of 2023.
Footloose first burst onto the silver screen in 1984 and proved to be one of the year’s most successful motion pictures. The soundtrack recording reached #1 on the Billboard charts, and went on to sell over 17 million copies worldwide, generating such Top Forty hits as its title song and “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” (both of which received Academy Award nominations), plus “Almost Paradise,” “Holding Out For A Hero,” and “I’m Free (Heaven Helps the Man).” With a screenplay and lyrics by Oscar winner Dean Pitchford, the story focused on young people.
Footloose: The Musical opened on Broadway on October 22, 1998. The next day, the show broke the box office record for the Richard Rodgers Theatre, where it continued to thrill audiences through July 2000.BUY TICKETS
