THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN | JANUARY 13–FEBRUARY 5, 2023

Based on the bestselling novel by Paula Hawkins and the DreamWorks film,
Adapted by Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel
Directed by Anna Crace

Rachel Watson longs for a different life. Her only escape is in the glimpse of the perfectly happy suburban couple she views through the train window on her daily London commute. Their life–as she sees it–is perfect. Not unlike the life she so recently lost… 

When Rachel learns that the woman she’s been secretly watching has suddenly disappeared, she finds herself as first a witness and then a suspect.  Soon she is deeply entangled in not only the investigation, but a mystery that will force her to face revelations she never could have anticipated. Based on the best-selling novel by Paula Hawkins and DreamWorks film by the same title, THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN will leave audiences on the edge of their seat until the final moments.  

Please note, this production features explicit language, graphic conversations about adult themes, portrayal of domestic abuse and violence against women, mention of child endangerment and death, and dramatic representation of substance abuse. Recommended for ages 16 and up.

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.
