‘Footloose’ is an energetic and uplifting show on stage now at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres. The show will run through Sept. 24.

Ever since the pandemic, entertainment has been more difficult to come by. For me, it has consisted of watching movies on the couch. Not a bad way to spend a night, but I was ready for something a little more lively.

With news of “Footloose” hitting the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres stage, I was looking forward to diving back into the world of live entertainment. I hadn’t been to the dinner theater since 2019 and “Footloose” seemed like just the show to get me back into the groove.
