The musical is based on the 1984 film of the same name. It tells the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy who moves to a small town. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with the town’s ban against dancing. As he struggles to fit in, Ron faces an uphill battle to change things. With the help of his new friend, Willard Hewitt, and defiant teen Ariel Moore, he might loosen up this conservative town. But Ariel’s influential father, Reverend Shaw Moore stands in the way.
