This year's season starts with a production of Footloose, the '80s smash hit movie of teenage rebellion. But that's just the beginning. Mark your calendars for more incredible performances.

There’s never been dancing in the town of Bomont. Nor has there been a kid like Ren McCormack. Something’s got to give. New York artist Alan Bennett returns to NWU (“Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,” “South Pacific”) to choreograph this movie-turned-musical.
