'Footloose' - 31 May - 26 September
Revisit the ‘80s with Footloose, the story of Ren McCormack, a teenage boy from Chicago, who moves with his mother, to a small farming town, after his father abandons them. Ren is prepared for the adjustment to his new high school, but what he isn’t prepared for is a ban on dancing by the town preacher, Reverend Shaw Moore.

Carole King, the chart-topping music legend, was an ordinary girl with an extraordinary talent. She fought her way into the record industry and sold her first hit, Will You Love Me Tomorrow, when she was just seventeen. By the age of twenty, she was writing number one hits for the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll, including The Drifters, The Shirelles, Aretha Franklin and The Monkees.

Shirley Valentine is a celebration of women, freedom and what it means to find yourself again. We meet Shirley, a bored, middle-aged wife and mother as she contemplates what has happened to her youth. Her children are all grown up and she’s stuck at home with only the kitchen wall to talk to. Shirley dreams of a better life, free from the chains of her domestic boredom and an unappreciative husband.
