Musical theatre favourite Darren Day will join the cast of Footloose The Musical as Reverend Moore when it visits Aberdeen’s His Majesty’s Theatre from June 8-13.

Darren will join additional cast which includes Geri Allen, Holly Ashton, Jess Barker, Ben Barrow, Alex Fobbester, Josh Hawkins, Lucy Ireland. Evie Rose Lane, Ben Mabberley, Daniel Miles, Tom Mussell, Samantha Richards, Dionne Ward Anderson and Anna West Lake.

Aberdeen Performing Arts director of programming and creative projects, Ben Torrie, said: “We’re thrilled to have Darren join us for what is shaping up to be a brilliant addition to this year’s packed programme at HMT. Footloose will have you dancing in the aisles and is sure to be a great night out.”

Darren said: “I’m truly happy and excited to be a part of this brilliant production. I was a teenager in the 80’s, which is such an impressionable age for movies and music. This is one of the most iconic films and soundtracks from my teenage years. I can remember hearing Footloose on the radio for the first time and thinking… what a tune!

“It’s been a while since I went out on tour with a musical and am very much looking

forward to going back to my musical theatre roots around the UK.”

City boy Ren thinks life is bad enough when he's forced to move to a rural backwater in America. But his world comes to a standstill when he arrives at Bomont to find dancing and rock music are banned. Taking matters into his own hands, soon Ren has all hell breaking loose and the whole town on its feet.

Based on the 1980s screen sensation which took the world by storm, Footloose The Musical sizzles with spirit, fun and the best in UK musical talent. With cutting edge modern choreography, you'll enjoy classic 80s hits including Holding Out for a Hero, Almost Paradise, Let's Hear It For The Boy and of course the unforgettable title track Footloose.

Footloose The Musical will be presented by Selladoor Productions and Runaway Entertainment and will be directed by Racky Plews, with choreography from Matt Cole, musical supervision by Mark Crossland and design by Sara Perks with lighting design from Chris Davey and sound design from Chris Whybrow. Everybody cut loose for a night of dazzling excitement music and dancing!
