‘Footloose’ coming to Norwegian Cruise Line!

Norwegian Creative StudiosNorwegian Creative Studios, the in-house entertainment division of Norwegian Cruise Line, has announced auditions for its reimagined and revamped production of Broadway’s Footloose. Dancers and dancers who can sing are sought to perform in this brand-new show at sea with fresh and exciting choreography!


Like the iconic 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon, this Footloose production will tell the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago who moves to the small town of Bomont with his mother. Upon arriving, Ren finds himself at odds with most of the town, including Reverend Bomont, who has convinced the town to outlaw dancing. Ren finds this ban unbelievable and with the help of Ariel, the Reverend’s rebellious daughter, and Willard, his new best friend, he will try and convince the town to let teenagers dance. In the process, Ren helps the community heal from a tragedy that affected them all.
