Only a week after putting on just under five shows of their most recent production “Into the Woods”, Theatre West released their lineup for the 2021-2022 school year.

Footloose

Dec. 2, 3 and 4

The 1998 Broadway musical based on the 1984 movie will highlight the main character Ren McCormack’s struggle to fit in while living in a small Midwestern town that has made dancing and rock music illegal. Auditions for “Footloose” will begin in early September.

Anastasia

April 7, 8 and 9

Based on the 1997 film, “Anastasia” tells the legend of the Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia who escaped the execution of her family. The main character and orphan Anya in hopes of finding a trace of her family sets out on a journey to tell the story of Anastasia.
