RAMAPO - Spring is in the air, and that means it’s time for a proud performance by Rockland Community College of the Campus Players and Performing Arts.
This year’s offering is the enormously entertaining and energetic stage performance of Footloose. Everyone is invited to enjoy the evening performances at 8 p.m. on April 11th, 12th, and 13th, or come for the special matinee performance on April 14th with ticket proceeds dedicated to Autism Speaks.
RCC’s Cultural Arts Theater, located at 145 College Road, Suffern, NY, is fully accessible with handicapped parking available.
Based on the hit 80s movie, Footloose became a stage musical phenomenon, with musical anthems including Holding Out For A Hero, Let’s Hear It For the Boy, Almost Paradise, and the title track Footloose. This performance, directed by Patty Maloney-Titland and Christopher Plummer, includes music and electrifying dance routines guaranteed to get the audience on its feet!
