A bickering brother and sister repeatedly awaken in strange scenarios to witness terrible things happening to each other. Why is this happening? Does it matter? Does anything?

Directed by Derek Dirlam and Penelope Parsons-Lord, and based on the original short story by phillip andrew bennett low!

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Minnesota Fringe Festival requires proof of vaccination for entry to all shows.

NATIONAL PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS HORROR BY MAXIMUM VERBOSITY

"It positively hums—high energy on a tight leash. It’s a bullet aimed at the dark corners of your brain...sharp as a razor. I marvel at how this thing was put together."
- Matthew A. Everett, Twin Cities Daily Planet

"With a control over the rhythm and pacing of his words that rivals Saul Williams, low paints a beautiful and sometimes not so beautiful picture..."
- Katelyn Coyne, Indianapolis Fun City Finder

"...low has a hell of an ear for language. Those are some downright beautiful sentences...the guy gives good aural."
- Glen Weldon, Washington City Paper

"...dark and passionate...thought-provoking theater..."
- Daniel Gerzina, Time Out Chicago

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.

To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top Forty score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.

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, much like his previous, and wildly successful movie musical Fame.
