What is a Living History presentation? 

It’s simple. An actor brings an historical character back to life. 

How do they do it? The actor does in-depth research into the character they have selected and create a presentation around the information that they have learned. The actors do not use a script that has been produced by someone else, but have created their own original dialogue. We at MadCap Living History do our best to represent the character as realistically as they were in life. We delve deeply into their life, and focus on various aspects that we find interest, and believe will find entertaining. We do our best to be accurate and respectful of all of our characters, even the ones that weren’t so respectable.

Footloose

When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.
To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top 40 score, augmented with dynamic new songs, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people while guiding them with a warm heart and open mind.
