Point Loma’s Chris Zimmer Huber and Paige Pendarvis are among the 27 students from throughout San Diego County performing in San Diego Junior Theatre’s production of “Footloose.”

Based on the 1984 film starring Kevin Bacon and John Lithgow, the production runs through Aug. 12 at Balboa Park’s Casa del Prado Theatre on Fridays at 7 p.m. and weekends at 2 p.m.

The Aug, 11 show will be presented along with American Sign Language interpretation.

 Adapted for the stage by Dean Pitchford and Walter Bobbie, “Footloose” takes place at a small farming town that’s turned upside-down when Ren, a high school student from Chicago, reluctantly moves there with his mother. Hailing from a metropolitan area, Ren struggles with fitting in at his new school and adjusting to the restrictive local laws, which includes a ban on dancing. The teen’s personal turmoil worsens when he falls for the wayward daughter of his church’s reverend, the ban’s originator.

Tickets range from $8 to $14 and are available online at juniortheatre.com or by calling (619) 239-8355.
