Meet the cast

Dancing On Ice winner and theatre star Jake Quickenden will star as Willard (to 23 July) with Darren Day as Reverend Moore.

Jake said: “I can’t wait to get out on tour with Footloose, after such a strange and difficult time we will finally be able to join our friends and family in the theatre for a truly feel -good night out. This show is packed full of amazing 80’s hits I can’t think of a better tonic for 2022.”

Darren added: “I was a teenager in the 80’s, which is such an impressionable age for movies and music. This is one of the most iconic films and soundtracks from my teenage years. I can remember hearing Footloose on the radio for the first time and thinking… what a tune! I’m really looking forward to seeing you there.”

Further casting will be announced soon.

The tour is directed by Racky Plews, with choreography from Matt Cole, musical supervision by Mark Crosslandand design by Sara Perkswith lighting design from Chris Daveyand sound design from Chris Whybrow.
