Enjoy Footloose - The Musical on the Isle of Wight

Fans of the '80s and all things retro might like to head along to reworking of one of the most iconic movies of the decade when visiting the Isle of Wight in the coming months.

Running from August 23rd to 25th at the Shanklin Theatre, Footloose - The Musical will be taking to the stage and offering a modern twist on this 80's classic.

Based on the hit film, the musical will feature impressive dance routines and an array of memorable songs, including Holding Out for a Hero, Let's Hear It for the Boy, Almost Paradise, and of course the movie's title track Footloose.

Guests will want to cut loose and kick off their Sunday shoes in the aisles, as the show takes the audience on a journey detailing the story of a small US town where dancing has been made illegal. All seems well until the return of City boy Ren, who aims to bring back the soul of the town that lingers with the memory of tragedy and get everyone up and dancing again.

Admission is set to cost £12 for adults and £10 for under-tens, with the show kicking off from 19:30 BST each night.

Visitors to the island interested in daring and unique performances might also wish to head along to the Quay Arts Theatre next month, where guests will be treated to the exploits of international man of mystery Bruce Bane.

Running from May 16th to 18th, Joe Bone's Bruce Bane series has been described as "Die Hard meets The Naked Gun" and promises to be a great evening of entertainment for those lucky enough to get tickets.

Heading to the island straight from this year's Melbourne Comedy Festival, the show is brainchild of Joe Bone - who plays all the characters - and is set to the intriguing and unique score of music man Ben Roe.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801579503-ADNFCR
