Evie Mohrfeld: Kick up your feet with ‘Footloose’

Published 5:42 pm Friday, July 22, 2022

Dinner theaters are high on our list of favorite places to visit on our travel schedule. Recently the production of “Footloose” at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatre was our destination.

This theater is highly rated for its productions, offering Broadway productions. The musical “Footloose” began production in the spring and has recently been extended to spring of 2023.

The high energy of young people in the cast and the message it offers will make it a favorite of many. We have planned a return visit.

Our travel schedule includes the following one or two-day trips (to date):

• Aug. 3: Lets play ball. Minnesota Twins vs Detroit Tigers, 12:10 p.m. Premium seating.

• Aug. 24: “Footloose,” Chanhassen Dinner Theatre

• Sept. 13: Church Basement Ladies newest show is “Plowin’ Thru.”

• Sept. 25: Stillwater Trolley Tour and Riverboat Cruise with a fine buffet and “Jazz Me on the Water.”

• Nov: 17-18: “White Christmas” at the Fireside Theatre in Wisconsin.

Our Travel Show is set for 2-4 p.m. on Aug. 4 at the Mower County Senior Center for those with an interest in the following trips:

• March 17 -22, 2023: Charleston, Savannah, and Jekyll Island.

• Aug. 31 – Sept. 10,  2023: Paris (two nights) and seven-night cruise on the Seine River.
