Shelly Walsh, Meghan McCandless, Mary Hannah Dober, and Caitlin Donahue (originally of Portsmouth) appear in “Footloose” at the Interlakes Summer Theatre, Aug 9-14.

Interlakes Theatre is finishing off this summer’s season with a show that will be performed for the first time ever in the NH Lakes Region, Footloose, opening on August 9. This classic tale of teenage rebellion and repression features incredible choreography and realistic and touching performances. When teenager Ren McCormack and his family move from big-city Chicago to a small Midwestern town, he’s in for a real case of culture shock. Though he tries hard to fit in, the streetwise Ren can’t quite believe he’s living in a place where rock music and dancing are illegal. However, there is one small pleasure: Ariel Moore, a troubled but lovely blonde with a jealous boyfriend and a father who is a Bible-thumping minister responsible for keeping the town dance-free. Ren and his classmates want to do away with this ordinance, especially since the senior prom is around the corner, but only Ren has the courage to initiate a battle to abolish the outmoded ban and revitalize the spirit of the repressed townspeople. Performances will be at Interlakes Auditorium One Laker Lane, on Tuesday August 9 thru August 14. Performances are 7:30 pm Tuesday through Saturday and 5 pm on Sunday. Matinees are Wednesday and Thursday at 2 pm. Tickets are available at the box office Monday-Saturday 10 am-5 pm and Sundays 12 pm-4 pm. Ticket prices are $25-$33. Call (603) 707-6035 to reserve your seats. Don’t miss out on this exciting final show of the season!
