Q: From which small American town did the story for Footloose originate?

A: Elmore City

Did you know…? Footloose is based on a true story.

  • In 1979 the small town of Elmore City, Oklahoma faced a community crisis. The seniors of Elmore High School wanted to plan a senior prom, but dances were against the law thanks to a not-forgotten ordinance from the late 1800s that forbade dancing within the city limits. A storm of controversy pitted the high school students against city council members led by the local minister, who declared dancing a tool of the devil.
  • The smash hit movie Footloose, starring Kevin Bacon and Sarah Jessica Parker was released just five years later.
  • The title song Footloose went from gold to platinum to multi-platinum in record time.
  • This production of Footloose first toured the UK in 2004 and was previously at The Lowry for a week in 2007.
  • The new Footloose film is due to be released in April 2011 starring Dennis Quaid and Andie MacDowell.
