    Teenaged Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town and run face first into rigorous municipal edicts, including a ban on dancing by the local pastor.

    When the pastor’s daughter shows a romantic interest in Ren, her uncouth boyfriend vows to destroy Ren’s reputation in the community. At the heart of the story, however, is a father reeling from tragic loss and a young man longing for the father who abandoned him.

    This Tony Award-nominated musical, featuring a top 40 score, dynamic new songs & soaring ballads, is based on the Academy Award-nominated film. It’s a celebration of forgiveness, healing, reconciliation, and community.
