LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - You can get a little taste of Broadway in South Georgia this week.

The award winning Lee County Drama Club goes all out on their spring performance every year.

72 cast members have been rehearsing for the last five weeks on this year's show, Footloose.

It's the first year amateur groups have been able to perform that musical.

"The show is based on the 1980's movie that featured Kevin Bacon, a Chicago boy who moves to a little town in Texas that does not allow dancing, and of course him coming from a big city he wants to rock the town a little bit and get them to allow dancing," said Dotty Davis, Lee County High Drama Director.

The show opens tomorrow and runs this weekend and next weekend.

Tickets go on sale an hour before the show and are $7 for students and $10 for adults.
