  • 1.  Footloose Youth Edition

    Has anyone done Footloose Youth Edition? Considering it for my seventh and eighth graders and would love to hear from those who have done it.

    Among the things I'm wondering about--how does it differ from the full show?  (I assume content is cleaned up?)  Also, I've mostly done MTI Jr. shows in the last few years, wondering how the materials from Concord compare.

    Hi Ryan,

        I am in the process of doing Footloose Youth Edition Right now. To answer your questions, they cleaned up a lot of the content from the full length. The music and script are very similar to MTI JR. shows. They even provide choreography videos that you can use if you like. They have guided vocals and performance tracks for the students to practice with. You do have to return the scripts when you are done, but the students can write in them, highlight in them because they are spiral bound disposable books. I find all of it to pretty much be the same as an MTI Jr. Show. I hope this helps!
